The Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council’s mission is “to work together across neighboring communities to consistently protect and improve the unique and relatively unspoiled character of the physical, economic and social worlds we share for the benefit of our future generations.” The SWFRPC was created in 1973 by an interlocal agreement between Charlotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry, Lee and Sarasota Counties in 1973. The SWFRPC acts as a regional information clearinghouse, conducts research to develop and maintain area wide goals, objectives, and policies, and assists in implementing a number of local, state, and federal programs. Since its inception, the SWFRPC has worked with local governments to protect natural resources and promote the creation of jobs within its six county region.
