CDRPC Governing Body

Twenty Board members, five from each county, are appointed by their respective County Legislative Bodies to serve as the policy-making body for the Commission. At least 51% of the Board must consist of elected or appointed government officials. Though its core programs serve the four counties, CDRPC has a nine-county jurisdiction for regional aviation system planning and a ten-county area for Foreign-Trade Zone activity.
