- 1967 - 1983
The Inter-County Planning and Development Commission was established in 1970 through an executive order by Governor Frank L Farrar (which set up six planning and development districts), and through the Joint Powers Statutes passed by the State Legislature. The Joint Powers language permits local governments to cooperate in planning and development activities. The function of the planning districts was to provide planning assistance for counties and municipalities; and to assist in zoning, developing subdivision ordinances and in writing grants for urban development, water quality and other programs. Counties could choose whether or not to participate in the districts. The districts formed between 1971 and 1974. District V was the first to disband in 1984. Only two of the original districts currently exist under their original name and mission: District I and District III.
