Community Assistance

 

Community Assistance

Since its inception in 1960, SEWRPC has carried out an extensive community assistance program. This program promotes coordination between regional and local plans, provides guidance to county and local governments relative to plan implementation activities, and assists in achieving good public administration in pursuing the sound physical development and management of the Region. SEWRPC also supports regional, county, and local economic development agencies and programs, and serves as the County Surveyor for four counties in the Region. Community Assistance and Economic Development services are available to all county and local governments that participate in and financially support the regional planning work program.
