About the RPC Board

SWCRPC is a non-taxing political subdivision. Approximately one third of our funding is determined by a formula which divides property transfer tax revenues between regional and municipal planning and the Vermont Housing and Conservation Trust Fund. Another third comes from the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) through the Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans). The remaining funds come from SWCRPC member town dues and grants through private, state, and federal programs.

We advocate for the needs of member towns and seek collaborative strategies to address local, regional, and state opportunities and concerns. One of our primary purposes is to provide technical services to town officials and to act as a resource for local governments. We help mediate inter-jurisdictional planning and development issues arising between member communities; facilitate discussion and understanding between local and state entities; and develop plans, policies, strategies, and procedures for addressing issues that are regional in scope.

Our activities are governed by a ten-person Board of Commissioners, appointed by the select boards of member towns, with assistance from one to three “at large” commissioners, appointed by the Board of Commissioners.
