Compatibility With Regional Planning Goals

The Lafayette Street Extension Project is important at a regional level. It meets many of the goals of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission's (DVRPC) comprehensive plan for the Philadelphia region, Connections 2045 Plan for Greater Philadelphia, by bringing economic growth to Norristown to stabilize the community and reduce suburban sprawl. The Lafayette Street Extension Project is listed in the plan and meets many of its goals of the plan, such as improving highway-transit connections and reducing local traffic congestion.
