The Richland County Regional Planning Commission’s Bylaws and Rules of Procedure serve to establish the administrative guidelines to be observed by the Board of County Commissioners and representatives of member municipalities to the RCRPC in order to insure orderly growth and development within the region.
The Richland County Regional Planning Commission has created the Public Records Request Form to ensure the rights of all persons to access records that are maintained by the RCRPC. We ask that you please direct your public record inquiries/ requests to the Records Manager of the RCRPC who is available during the regular business hours; Monday through Friday 8:00am to 11:30 am & 12:30 pm to 4:00 pm.
The RCRPC strongly promotes public participation in the transportation process to helps ensure the public’s needs and preferences are met. This allows the RCRPC to make better informed decisions through collaborative efforts and builds mutual understanding and trust between the RCRPC and the public served. The Public Involvement Plan is intended to provide direction for public involvement activities to be conducted by the RCRPC and contains policies, goals, objectives and techniques used by the MPO to solicit public involvement.
The purpose of this program is to inform the public, staff and oversight agencies of the policies and procedures of the RCRPC that pertain to the United States Department of Transportation’s (DOT) Title VI regulations (49 CFR part 21).
Most federal agencies have adopted regulations that prohibit recipients of federal funds from using criteria or methods of administering their programs that have the effect of subjecting individuals to discrimination based on race, color, or national origin. The Supreme Court has held that such regulations may validly prohibit practices having a disparate impact on protected groups, even if the actions or practices are not intentionally discriminatory.
Richland County Regional Planning Commission has created the Complaint Form so the public may file a written complaint concerning the Commission’s planning, management, and program administration in compliance with federal regulations. Complaint forms will be heard by the Executive Committee and filed within a central file log. Please submit your complaints in writing.
