A longtime municipal planner will take over the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission in January.

The commission today said that Steve Deck, an agency planner for the last two years, will be the new executive director of the organization, replacing retiring Tim Reardon.

Reardon announced his retirement in September. He joined the agency in 1984 and assumed the role of executive director in 2010.

Established in 1966, the 19-member commission provides planning services for the region, and is comprised of residents and officials from Dauphin and Perry counties. Cumberland County withdrew from the organization two years ago.

Its duties include managing the Regional Growth Management Plan; the Harrisburg Area Transportation Study (HATS), which serves as the region’s federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization; and providing staff support to the Dauphin and Perry county planning commissions.

Deck, a lifelong Harrisburg-area resident, has more than 30 years of municipal planning experience. He most recently led the development of Dauphin County's comprehensive plan. He is currently developing a long-range transportation plan for HATS.

"I'm honored to have the opportunity to serve the commission in this capacity," he said. "As the region continues to grow and develop, I'm confident that Tri-County will play a key role in working with others to build upon the great quality of life in the region."

Prior to the commission, Deck worked for Parsons Brinckerhoff, Skelly and Loy, Gannett Fleming and the Cumberland County Conservation District.
