Mission & History
The mission of ACRPC is to provide a forum for municipalities to discuss and resolve mutual concerns, to provide assistance to municipalities with the planning process and information gathering, to develop a regional plan, and to be a central repository of planning information.
ACRPC was established in 1967 when the Vermont Legislature passed measures enabling municipalities to join together to form regional commissions.
ACRPC promotes community development within the Addison Region and its member municipalities by providing planning expertise, information and a forum to discuss and resolve community needs and concerns.
What We Do
Along with ten other regional planning commissions around the state, Addison County RPC was established by the legislature to:
- Promote economic development, increasing jobs and income
- Preserve the natural beauty of Vermont
- Obtain and maintain efficiency in government expenditure
- Safeguard and extend local autonomy in planning and development decisions
