Our Mission

To serve our citizens and member governments by providing a forum to foster communication, coordination, and collaboration in identifying and addressing issues and needs regionally.

Convening the Region

The tougher challenges of the 21st century require regional thinkers, conveners and problem solvers. Since 1962, the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council has brought together local governments and gubernatorial appointees to coordinate planning for the Region’s future. TBRPC provides a venue for analyzing issues, resolving problems, and sharing solutions among the jurisdictions in Citrus, Hernando, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pasco and Pinellas Counties.

Florida Statutes 186.502(4)(1) recognize Regional Planning Councils as Florida’s only multipurpose regional entities in a position to plan for and coordinate intergovernmental solutions to growth-related problems on greater-than-local issues, provide technical assistance to local governments, and meet other needs of the communities in each region. TBRPC was the first of ten RPCs to be established in Florida.

As a regional entity, the Tampa Bay Regional Planning Council works closely with a number of local governments and jurisdictions throughout the Tampa Bay region.
