Courts - 37th Judicial District of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania
Welcome to the Warren & Forest County Court System
Welcome to Warren and Forest Counties, situated in northwestern Pennsylvania. The beautiful Allegheny River winds through both counties, which contain a large portion of the Allegheny National Forest. It is in this mostly rural setting that you will find the Court of Common Pleas of the 37th Judicial District of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
The 37th Judicial District was formed in 1874 from the counties of Warren, Forest and Elk. In 1883 Elk County was separated from the District leaving the counties of Warren and Forest. Each county maintains a separate Courthouse and filing system. However, the Judges for both counties maintain their offices in the Warren County Courthouse. The Judges travel to the Forest County Courthouse to conduct proceedings there as needed.
The Northwest Commission Transportation Advisory Committee (TAC) dedicates this 2050 Long-Range Transportation Plan to Dan Glotz, TAC Chairman. Dan retired from the TAC in November 2023 after serving as its chairman for 23 years.
The commission expresses its gratitude for Dan’s dedicated service and leadership to the region. He guided the Northwest Rural Planning Organization (RPO) through many transportation initiatives over the years, from the initial implementation of TEA-21 and improvements to transportation security in the aftermath of 9/11, to the modern-day provisions of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Dan’s role as Director of Planning and Zoning for Warren County was foundational to his expertise and commitment to improving transportation in our region. He has been an ardent advocate for healthy lifestyles and walking and bicycling, and improving regional mobility and connections to the national Interstate system. His steady leadership and influence has inspired a new generation of leaders on the TAC, as Zach Norwood of Crawford County will be carrying on the mantle beginning in 2024.
While we will miss Dan’s leadership as TAC chairman, we are confident he will continue to be an advocate for improving the region’s transportation system through his new role as Warren County Commissioner.
Thank you, Dan, for your many years of faithful service to the Northwest RPO.
Jill Foys, Executive Director
Northwest PA Regional Planning & Development Commission
