The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission’s (RPC) search for candidates interested in serving as one of two Community Members on the Commission has been extended to Tuesday, September 7. Community Members are voluntary, unpaid positions appointed by the other Commissioners to two-year terms.
It is anticipated that a new Community Member will be appointed in September 2021 for a two-year term, with the term ending in January 2023. The purpose of the Community Member position is to ensure that the needs and perspective of low-income individuals and minorities in our community are represented on the Commission.
The Champaign County Regional Planning Commission was created in 1966, and each decade has resulted in numerous changes and growth at the RPC. The RPC provides and administers a variety of planning, community and economic development, early childhood education, and community services for Champaign and surrounding counties.
It is the mission of the RPC to promote, plan, facilitate, and accomplish the improved health, safety, welfare, education, economic conditions, environment, and regional development within Champaign County in particular, as well as within the greater East Central Illinois area.
Application and Statement of Economic Interests forms (found below) must be submitted no later than 5pm on Tuesday, September 7, 2021. Individuals may also contact Mayor Diane Marlin, RPC Board Chair, at 217-384-2456, or by e-mail at email@example.com with questions about the RPC or serving on the Commission.
