Northampton County Executive Lamont McClure has made his point, and it’s a valid one. Now, it’s time to move on. McClure correctly stated that the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission’s executive committee decision to move the LVPC headquarters to Allentown is a bad one. The new location, along the Lehigh River waterfront, will cost $120,000 more annually in rent than its current location near Lehigh Valley International Airport in Hanover Township, Lehigh County. “Your destination of choice, your cool location is just not good government,” McClure said, referring to the expenditure. Well stated. But McClure lost us when he indicated he had formed a committee to explore leaving the LVPC. Don’t make that threat. Cooperation between Lehigh and Northampton counties on regional planning is more crucial than ever given the proliferation of warehouses in the region, an issue McClure has been raising publicly for years now. This issue is exactly why we need a regional planning commission. A strong and united LVPC arguably represents our best shot at getting warehouses under control on a regional level. McClure also complained that the new location moves the headquarters farther away from the geographic center of the Lehigh Valley and getting to meetings will become more difficult for Northampton County’s commission members. That’s a stretch. The new headquarters would still be within five miles of the geographic center and a five-minute drive from the old headquarters. It shouldn’t create a real hardship for anyone. Still, we get McClure’s frustration, especially when it comes to the rent expenditure. But throwing out the idea of the county leaving the LVPC is only going to create animosity among Lehigh County members at a time when we need more unity between the two counties. We’d urge McClure to reconsider this tactic given what’s at stake with the warehouse boom in the Lehigh Valley.

The Poconos are a way of life | Howard J. Grossman
There are many words and phrases that could describe the Pocono-Northeast. One of these may be Veritas Vita. Used sometimes in a religious sense, it means The Truth, The Life. Recently, it was used in a novel by author Steve Berry, and it brought to light, a story line in that book. However, in this region, it may mean the many assets that portray our ability to think through positive elements that enable this region to verify its destiny of becoming major center for economic development with a life that thrives on talent, capability, human services, a place to be meaningful and independent as required.
