Adams County Planning Commission (ACPC)

Adams County Planning Commission (ACPC)

The Adams County Planning Commission (ACPC) was established by the County Commissioners in 1965. Their purpose is to promote cooperation among planning boards, agencies, and citizens interested in planning in Adams County; encourage and stimulate public interest in state, county, local and regional planning; encourage observance of sound planning practices; exchange information, advice, and assistance among its membership; and engage in research and issue publications relative to planning to the extent of the Commission's resources.

The Planning Commission consists of nine members appointed by the Adams County Commissioners on four-year terms. Members are selected to be geographically represented throughout Adams County, with every school district represented by at least one member of the Planning Commission.
