NCRPC Vision and Mission Statements


The North Central Regional Planning Commission seeks to make North Central Kansas a region of rural opportunity wherein individuals have available the necessary resources and support to pursue and achieve personal dreams in a tranquil setting.

The region must thus become a well-integrated, singular place whose collective interests are served through a sharing and cooperative atmosphere.  Individuals and development organizations must focus their energies and resources on making North Central Kansas itself competitive.  The advantage brought about by such cooperative spirit will make North Central Kansas attractive to individuals and businesses alike seeking a place of secure comfort and rural life-style.   A healthy influx of new ideas and private capital can thus be introduced as people invest their time, talent and wealth in the region.

Furthermore, the North Central Regional Planning Commission seeks to ensure the internal human and physical resources are developed to make such opportunity possible.  This is to be done in an environmentally safe and sustainable way, adding to the region's overall attraction.  The prevailing mindset sought is:

  • Resources are to be shared, not withheld. 
  • Natural attributes of the region are to be protected, not exploited in a detrimental way. 
  • Human need is to be identified and addressed without qualification as to social standing or place of residence.
  • Regional interests are the interests of individual place, for preservation and enhancement of regional assets means local survival is better ensured.
