Organizational Structure

The Mid-Coast Regional Planning Commission (MCRPC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that is exclusively owned and operated by its member communities through their elected representatives. MCRPC is composed of representation from all of the member municipalities in our region. In addition, we offer opportunity for input from Knox and Waldo Counties, and local development groups. MCRPC consists of an Executive Board, Officers, and professional staff.

The Executive Board is elected by the membership to oversee the organization’s operation. This allows the Officers to guide the future direction, level of service, role and function of MCRPC.
