About TCRPC

Stronger when we work together ...

The mission of the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission is to foster the long-term livability and vitality of our communities, counties and region.

Since 1966, we’ve been a forum for information sharing, consensus building and coordination to tackle regional issues facing the diverse communities of Cumberland, Dauphin and Perry counties. We believe the region is stronger when we work together.

TCRPC’s four main programs include:

  • the Regional Growth Management Plan, which promotes economic growth and revitalization in our communities while protecting natural resources, optimizing transportation options and recognizing important quality-of-life issues;
  • the Harrisburg Area Transportation Study (HATS), the federally designated Metropolitan Planning Organization for the three-county region;
  • and providing staff support to the Dauphin and Perry county planning commissions.

TCRPC meets all of these needs with a small staff that provides a tremendous variety of planning support, technical expertise and opportunities for education and training -- all in a spirit of collaboration. Guiding our work is a 19-member, county commissioner-appointed board comprised of residents and officials from Dauphin and Perry counties.
