Boards & Committees

Tri-County Regional Planning Commission hosts a number of regional boards and committees. These bodies address critical regional issues in a variety of topics, from equitable transportation to protecting the Illinois River.

Tri-County Regional Planning Commission

The full board of TCRPC is the primary decision-making body for the organization and is composed of 22 members. Peoria, Tazewell, and Woodford Counties are each represented by their own 7 voting members. Commissioners for each county are appointed by their respective County Board Chairperson. IDOT is represented by one voting member, who is appointed by the Illinois Secretary of Transportation. The Full Commission meets on the fourth Thursday of every month at 5:30 pm, unless otherwise posted. To view future meeting dates and meeting materials, please visit our Meetings+Events page.

Standing Committees

The Commission may establish committees to assist in the operation, management, and program planning activities of TCRPC. Committees may focus on internal operations (e.g. Ways and Means Committee, Personnel Committee) or may focus on a specific issue or project. All committees are made up of Commissioners.

The Executive Board serves as the policy and formulation body for the Commission. The Executive Board consists of the five Commission Officers and four other Commissioners appointed by the full board. All Executive Board members serve one-year terms. The executive director of TCRPC also serves as a non-voting, advisory member to the Executive Board. The Executive Board may perform all the functions and duties of the Commission, should a full quorum of Commission members not be present. The Executive Board meets monthly, on the Monday before each full Commission meeting, unless otherwise posted.

The Ways and Means Committee reviews and advises the Commission on the fiscal affairs of the Commission. The Ways and Means Committee meets the fourth Thursday of every month before the full commission meeting from 4:30-5:30 p.m. unless otherwise posted.

The Personnel Committee reviews and advises the Commission on personnel matters, and carries out other responsibilities as specified by the Commission. The Personnel Committee only meets when needed.

The Nominations Committee nominates Commissioners to serve in officer positions and to serve on committees. The Nominations Committee meets yearly–typically in the month of May–to prepare nominations for the coming fiscal year, unless otherwise posted.
