About the Planning Roundtable
The Mid-Atlantic Regional Planning Roundtable forums are held in response to the need to look beyond individual planning regions and foster communication and coordination between regions on transportation issues. Roundtable events seek to:
- Showcase regional planning and cooperation in the host region.
- Include metropolitan and non-metropolitan perspectives in relation to State and Federal policy and resources.
- Feature current and long-term issues relevant to local and regional development challenges for the Mid-Atlantic States and regions.
- Involve academic and institutional regional research to utilize existing knowledge and develop new and expanded regional and multi-regional resources to support and inform planning and implementation at all levels.
