Planning and Economic Development
The Department of Planning and Economic Development oversees Lackawanna County’s Office of Economic and Community Development, as well as the work of the Lackawanna County Regional Planning Commission and the Lackawanna County Redevelopment Authority. 

  • The Department is committed to a variety of programs to enhance quality of life, support the growth and development of existing businesses, attract new businesses and industries, create and retain family-sustaining jobs, and develop a business - friendly regional reputation. 

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a $50,000 donation to support the annual Toys For Tots Drive. Due to the economic hardships created by the COVID 19 pandemic, this gift will help to deliver smiles, hope and Santa to children during the holiday season.

The Lackawanna County Commissioners presented a $200,000 American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) check to the Griffin Pond Animal Shelter/Humane Society of Lackawanna County.  The much-needed resources will provide finances for the organization to cover operating costs.
