The Panhandle Regional Planning Commission is a voluntary association of cities, counties and special districts in the Texas Panhandle. The Planning Commission assists local governments in planning, developing and implementing programs designed to improve the general health, safety, and welfare of the citizens in the Texas Panhandle.
The Planning Commission is an organization of, by and for local governments. It was created based on the concept that more can be accomplished by local governments acting cooperatively rather than alone. Since 1969, the Planning Commission has been involved in a wide range of projects and programs. Activities currently include programs in the areas of employment and training, aging, community development, economic development, dispute resolution, emergency communications, criminal justice, solid waste management, water planning, regional services and technical assistance to the local governments of the Panhandle.
Board of Directors Meeting Date:
Fourth Thursday of each month.
