The health and safety of the public and our workers is a priority for the Commonwealth and this agency.  Commonwealth and Capitol Complex offices are operating with limited, remote staffing for the foreseeable future.  If you need to reach us during this time, please email or leave a message at 717-783-5417.

Our next public meeting will be held on June 18th. In accordance with Commonwealth and Center for Disease Control recommendations on meetings and gatherings, attendance will be limited to 25 people including IRRC staff and agency attendees.  Masks or face coverings will be required and we strongly encourage anyone interested in providing comments on agenda items to do so in writing rather than attending in person.

Please monitor our website for updates.
