In October 2021, The League launched ENVISION 2032, an initiative to engage members and stakeholders in a 10-year visioning process. Since then, The League has: 

  • Conducted a survey of municipal leaders throughout the Commonwealth to identify the issues they view as most important to address in the next ten years and to understand their current priorities. We received responses from 115 individuals representing 84 municipalities of all sizes and types.
  • Convened seven forums across Pennsylvania that brought together more than 200 municipal leaders and stakeholders to share promising practices, learn from their fellow local leaders, and discuss what the future potentially holds. 
  • Published the ENVISION 2032 leadership publication, which debuted at the October 2022 Municipal Leadership Summit. The publication covers the topics of highest concern that municipal leaders identified in the survey and forums:
    • Infrastructure
    • Municipal Finance
    • Equity and Civic Engagement
    • Community Development
    • Sustainability 
    • Public Health & Safety
    • Economic Vitality

Each topical section within the publication contains context regarding current realities and future challenges for municipalities in Pennsylvania, municipal leaders’ suggestions for how we should move forward, examples of actions municipalities are taking now, and policy recommendations for Commonwealth lawmakers. 

Moving Forward Together

Over the coming months and years, The League will continue advancing the ENVISION 2032 initiative by: 

  • Featuring the latest information and resources in this section of our website. 
  • Keeping our finger on the pulse of changing dynamics and needs.
  • Facilitating the ongoing sharing of ideas and solutions during our District Meetings and other League activities. 

We look forward to your participation as we continue this journey together!
