PHILADELPHIA (February 2, 2023) – Klehr Harrison Harvey Branzburg LLP is proud to announce that Leonard B. Altieri, III, an associate in the Real Estate and Finance Department, has been appointed to the Delaware County Redevelopment Authority (RDA) by the Delaware County Council. The Authority's primary responsibility is to assist the County and its municipalities in stimulating economic revitalization and growth and acts as the vehicle for condemnation and development within the county. 

“I am grateful for County Council’s confidence in appointing me to the Redevelopment Authority,” said Altieri. “I look forward to working with my new colleagues in stimulating economic revitalization and growth in Delaware County.

He has experience representing various Municipalities and Zoning Hearing Boards where he advised and defended his clients on Zoning & Land Use, Federal Civil Rights, Political Subdivision Tort Claims Act, Public Official Liability and Premises Liability.

In addition to the RDA, Altieri is extensively involved in his local community, where he currently serves as Chairman of the Newtown Township Board of Supervisors. He is a former member of the Marple Newtown Board of School Directors, where he served from 2013 to 2019, holding various leadership positions on the School Board. Prior to his election to the Board of Supervisors in 2019, Altieri also served on the Newtown Township Planning Commission from 2013 to 2018, serving as Commission Secretary from 2015 to 2018.
