The South Alabama
Regional Planning Commission was initially organized in
1964 by local governments in Mobile County and
was first known as the Mobile County Regional Planning Commission.
The Commission became a tri-county region in 1968 when Baldwin
and Escambia Counties entered into full membership
with Mobile County at which time it became the
South Alabama Regional Planning Commission. It
is one of twelve regional commissions in the State of Alabama
as provided for in Act 1126 of the 1969 Alabama Legislature.
The Commission is an instrument of local government. It is
locally organized and locally controlled. Through communication, planning,
policymaking, coordination, advocacy and technical assistance, the Commission
serves its member governments and citizens of the region. It also provides a
forum for member government representatives to discuss and resolve common
problems, especially those that transcend political boundaries.
