Overview

Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC), one of 21 Planning District Commissions in the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a regional organization representing this area's sixteen local governments. Planning District Commissions are voluntary associations and were created in 1969 pursuant to the Virginia Area Development Act and a regionally executed Charter Agreement. The HRPDC was formed in 1990 by the merger of the Southeastern Virginia Planning District Commission and the Peninsula Planning District Commission.

Membership on the 45-member Commission is based on population, with each jurisdiction having a minimum of two members. The Commission has an Executive Committee, made up of one member from each jurisdiction. The Executive Committee provides policy oversight to the HRPDC's activities through monthly meetings held between the quarterly meetings of the full Commission. The Executive Director/Secretary, selected by the Commission, manages the daily operations of the planning district's professional staff of over 40 people.

Regional: Resolution Number 90-R-030 dated May 22, 1990 approved the merger of the Southeastern Virginia Planning District Commission and the Peninsula Planning District Commission
