What Can R2PC Do For Your Community?
The Region 2 Planning Commission (R2PC) was created to assist its member units of government. The most visible outcome of this charge is the community planning assistance provided by staff. Region 2 planners have been helping local governments to develop, adopt, and implement master plans, zoning ordinances, and other planning and zoning resources for decades.
Although the other services provided by the R2PC may not be as visible as community planning assistance, they are just as important to the region and your municipality. For example, the behind-the-scenes work performed by Region 2 staff facilitates the acquisition and expenditure of federal and state funding in two key areas throughout the three counties:
- Transportation. The R2PC serves as the Jackson metropolitan area’s MPO, which facilitates all federal and state funding for transportation improvements throughout Jackson County and the Region 2 Rural Task Force, which facilitates the allocation of rural federal and state transportation funds throughout the entire region.
- Economic Development. Region 2 planners have been working with the U.S. Economic Development Agency to establish Region 2 as an Economic Development District (EDD) which will make local governments eligible for federal economic development funding.
The organization and its staff have provided planning services to member units of government for over five decades.
