The County adopted a bi-county Regional Plan as the Comprehensive Plan and Long-Range Transportation Plan for the MPO in 2011. The Long-Range Transportation Plan was updated and adopted in 2016. The 2011 Regional Plan is the current Comprehensive Plan for Luzerne County, and is the policy basis for zoning decisions and other land development policies countywide.
Luzerne County is currently in the process of updating the Bi-County Regional Plan in coordination with the Lackawanna County Regional Planning Commission. The update will commence with the first Steering Committee meeting to be held Wednesday, March 18, 2020 at the Pittston City Library. A link to the project website will be posted here in the near future.
