Commission Members

The Regional Planning Commission is governed by a board comprised of local elected officials, citizen members from the parishes of Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard and St. Tammany, as well as the Louisiana Secretary of Transportation. This group meets on a monthly basis to discuss issues that are regional in nature and approve the expenditure and programming of funds for our region’s transportation needs. Guiding the decisions of the RPC’s Board is the transportation policy committee.
