The Hampton Roads Planning District Commission (HRPDC), one of 21 Planning District Commissions in the Commonwealth of Virginia, is a regional organization representing this area’s seventeen local governments.

The HRPDC mission is to:

  • Serve as a forum for local elected officials and chief administrators to deliberate and decide issues of regional importance;
  • Provide the local governments and citizens of Hampton Roads credible and timely planning, research and analysis on matters of mutual concern; and
  • Provide leadership and offer strategies and support services to other public and private, local and regional agencies, in their efforts to improve the region’s quality of life.

The HRPDC serves as a resource of technical expertise to its member local governments.
