After many years of faithful service to the residents of Luzerne County on the staff of the Luzerne County Planning Commission and to the traveling public through her work for over twenty-five years on the Lackawanna Luzerne Transportation Study Metropolitan Planning Organization, Nancy Snee retired on December 4th.
Nancy was named interim Director of the Luzerne County Planning Commission on the retirement of Executive Director Adrian Merolli in 2013. On the MPO Nancy served as Vice-Chair of the Technical Committee for many years and acted as the secretary for the MPO making sure all documents such as the self-certification reviews and modifications and amendments to the Transportation Improvement Program were entered into the PENNDOT system. With Adrian’s retirement, Nancy also held a seat on the MPO Coordinating Committee.
Her work was instrumental in preparation of the first bi-county Comprehensive Plan, Long Range Transportation Plan and Hazard Mitigation Plan that was completed with Lackawanna County as well as the recent updates to those documents. Her work and experience serving on the MPO will be missed.
Lee Puskar has been named acting Director to replace her.
