The South Florida Regional Planning Council is a planning and public policy agency. The policy document, which guides all of the Council’s activities, is the Strategic Regional Policy Plan for South Florida (SRPP). Council members are responsible for addressing regional priorities and providing assistance and policy guidance to local governments as supported by the SRPP.
While membership is organized to geographically represent the South Florida region, provide diverse perspectives, and protect various interests, the role of Council members is to consider the regional implication of issues brought before the Council. The ex-officio members serve as a resource to provide information and recommendations in their respective areas of expertise. Unlike elected positions, members of the South Florida Regional Council are limited to an advisory capacity rather than in a directed or regulatory capacity.
