RPC responsibilities

Regional Planning Commissions (RPCs) provide planning assistance on regional issues, assist local interests in responding to state and federal programs, act as a coordinating agency for programs and activities, and provide planning and development assistance to local governments.

Specific examples of RPC services include: comprehensive community plans, zoning and subdivision ordinances, grant writing, geographic information system map production, revolving loan fund administration, economic development planning, socio-economic data collection and dissemination, and public policy advocacy on issues affecting a region.

Wisconsin's RPCs are designated by state and federal government as clearinghouses for reviewing federal grant applications for conformance with adopted regional and local plans and development priorities. Four RPCs (Bay-Lake, East Central, Southeast and West Central) also serve as Metropolitan Planning Organizations (MPOs).
