The Northwest Iowa Planning and Development Commission is a regional governmental organization whose mission is to provide community and economic development and job training services for a nine county area. The agency's full time, professional staff assists the member counties and municipalities in such areas as community planning and zoning, federal and state grant preparation and administration, economic development planning activities, general governmental technical assistance, Workforce Investment Act/Workforce Development, school to work, and PROMISE JOBS administration. In effect, the NWIPDC staff functions as an extension of member governments' staffs, providing the specialized services and technical assistance that would not be financially feasible for each governmental entity to provide on its own.

If you should have any additional questions about the survey or about any planning, housing, economic or community development services provided by your regional planning agency in NW Iowa, please don’t hesitate to contact the Planning staff at NWIPDC for additional information. We would certainly appreciate the time to talk to you about NWIPDC; and will also be glad to come visit with your City Council or Board of Supervisors as well.

Thank you for your time and participation!
