What We Do
The core function of the UMVRDC is to provide assistance to the local units of government within our jurisdictional boundaries. The UMVRDC’s governing board is comprised primarily of local elected officials from the five county area. These elected officials set the agenda and approve the work plan for the Commission.
A secondary function is to provide a vehicle for implementation of regional programs that cross over traditional jurisdiction boundaries of counties, cities and townships. The Commission also serves as a vehicle to work in cooperation with state and federal agencies to implant various programs on a regional basis.
