Another RPC Bites the Dust — in Illinois

In Grundy County Illinois, wise county managers have decided to eliminate their regional planning commission.

MORRIS – The Grundy County Regional Planning Commission is no more. The Grundy County Board voted at its regular meeting Tuesday to terminate the commission and move its responsibilities to the Zoning Board of Appeals.

Board Chairman Chris Balkema, R-District 2, said he hoped people would learn that the process in Grundy County is getting more efficient.

“This is a great savings to the county in terms of time and expediency of the process,” he said.

Now if only NH would see the wisdom in this, and eradicate these errant, unaccountable boards. For now, the only way to escape your RPC is to demand your town unsubscribe from their ‘services’.
