End-of-Year Message from Our Director
What a year it has been! Who could have imagined in January that we would face public health, economic, racial justice, and political crises this year, along with the climate crisis that keeps rolling on?

Like many organizations, CARPC worked to adapt to the shifting realities while carrying out our work and keeping our eye on the long-term horizons that planning focuses on. This involved watershed and regional land use planning while reviewing local Urban Service Area boundary amendments and providing local planning assistance.
