The Golden Crescent Regional Planning Commission (GCRPC) was created in 1968 in response to the Regional Planning Act of 1965, as amended and codified. Historically, the primary functions of GCRPC were viewed as planning for the development of the region, assisting local governments, and providing technical assistance/services. However, since its inception, the role of GCRPC has grown to include comprehensive planning and service delivery in program areas such as aging, employment and training, criminal justice, solid waste management, community and economic development and tourism. Today, GCRPC's work plan is flexible, changing each year in response to the identified priorities and needs expressed by the Board of Directors and local government members. Staff and membership work closely together to develop opportunities that will enhance the economic outlook of the entire region. By promoting intergovernmental cooperation, we can utilize each others' resources and talents to assist in dealing with problems, concerns and planning needs that cross individual government boundaries.
