Upper Explorerland Regional Planning Commission (UERPC) has played an important role in the evolution of Northeast Iowa since 1972, helping maintain the very qualities that make this region special. The 21st Century offers opportunities in such areas as transportation, planning, energy, planning, housing and workforce, just to name a few. There are countless challenges that must be faced as well. New infrastructure is needed. Workforce is a major issue and need. In their pursuit for quality growth and prudent development, the communities and counties of Northeast Iowa are working with UERPC, a public organization with over 40 years of experience, on issues related to economic development, community planning, housing, workforce and transportation needs.
In FY 2018-2019, UERPC braced itself for reduced administrative fees from both state and federal programming. UERPC did bring in investments of over $5.9 million to the region for various projects that align with our mission.
While revenues of the Commission’s governmental activities decreased 12.08% or approximately $434,000 from fiscal year 2018 to fiscal year 2019, program expenses were 15.93% or approximately $579,000 less in fiscal year 2019 than in fiscal year 2018. The Commission’s net position increased 5.37% or approximately $81,000 from June 30, 2018 to June 30, 2019.
UERPC continues to host two locations and 21 employees to serve our clients. These employees live, work and play within Northeast Iowa and have great pride in their work and where they reside. Please utilize our one-stop shop services to better assist your community or your county.
