Who We Are
Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission was organized on October 14, 1968 when Governor Warren E. Hearnes signed the “Designation Resolution”. The authorization is known as the State and Regional Planning and Community Development Act of 1966. We are one of 19 regional planning commissions in Missouri. The primary focus of the organization upon its inception has been to provide professional planning services and technical assistance to members within the region.
The seven county region was formed when a group of local residents and elected officials met to discuss the need of a unified effort to work cooperatively to solve problems and to plan for future development of human, natural, and economic resources of the region. It was decided that regional planning is an indispensable guide to local units of government in accomplishing a coordinated and efficient development of the region which will best promote the public health, safety, general welfare, and economic prosperity in accordance with existing and future needs.
The primary focus of the organization upon its inception has been to provide professional planning services and technical assistance to members within the region. KBRPC helps communities help themselves, now and in the future. KBRPC formed a cooperative relationship with county and city governments to help communities make life easier for citizens. KBRPC staff forges links between local leaders and state and federal agencies. Established in 1968, we serve more than 100,000 people in seven counties: Bates, Benton, Cedar, Henry, Hickory, St. Clair and Vernon.
Kaysinger Basin Regional Planning Commission serves as an economic development district for Bates, Benton, Cedar, Henry, Hickory, St. Clair, and Vernon Counties. Staff members aid these counties and their communities in areas of grant writing and administration services, economic development planning, transportation planning, solid waste management, hazard mitigation planning, homeland security planning, and more.
