The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission was established in 1958 to promote intergovernmental cooperation, regional planning, and a vision for the future. The Commission exists to serve the residents of Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties by offering a forum for leaders of local government, and to develop a vision for the future by defining regional issues, setting goals, and cooperatively implementing plans. The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is the “Steward of the Regional Vision.”
The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission provides regional planning services to the Tri-County Region which includes Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford counties in Central Illinois. These services include regional projects such as metropolitan transportation planning services provided in cooperation with the Peoria/Pekin Urbanized Area Transportation Study (PPUATS), and projects which promote responsible land use management and protection of the environmental assets.
