The primary role of a Regional Planning Commission (RPC) is to support local municipalities in their planning and community development responsibilities. This is done in a variety of ways such as:

  • Helping to secure funding for transportation and other infrastructure projects;
  • Assisting communities in preparing local planning documents such as master plans, CIPs, natural resource inventories, open space plans and hazard mitigation plans;
  • Developing local ordinances and providing technical assistance and general guidance to local land use boards;
  • Working with municipalities to obtain and administer state and federal grant programs; and
  • Reducing costs to municipalities through regional coordination, intermunicipal cooperation and problem solving.
