Champaign County Regional Planning Commission

All RPC locations are now open to the public, including our main office at the Brookens Administrative Center (1776 E. Washington Street in Urbana). We ask that all visitors wear a mask when visiting one of our locations. We continue to monitor CDC recommendations for wearing masks indoors and feel this requirement is the best way to ensure the health and safety of our staff and our community. If you do not have a mask, one will be provided for you. Thank you for understanding and cooperation.
