Florida Regional Planning Councils

The Florida Regional Planning Councils are multi-purpose organizations.These are public organizations that bring together the state’s local governments to share responsibility for Florida’s future. 

Each Regional Planning Council is like a bridge between state and local governments, representing areas with common resources, characteristics and problems. The Regional Planning Council is made up of members of the counties and local governments located within the area’s planning districts and Governor’s Commissioners representing the state. Both  state and local governments often rely on  regional planning councils to provide assistance in the areas of economic development, emergency planning, and transportation.
