The Northeast Florida Regional Council (NEFRC) is a dynamic network of local governance, serving seven counties – Baker, Clay, Duval, Flagler, Putnam, Nassau and St. Johns – and their 27 municipalities.
The mission of the NEFRC is to celebrate the unique assets of Northeast Florida and to engage its people, businesses, governments and organizations. In doing so we:
- Communicate Issues
- Convene Stakeholders
- Collaborate with Others
- Calculate and Analyze
- Construct Solutions
Regional Planning Councils are authorized by Florida Statutes. There are 10 Regional Planning Councils in the State of Florida.
The Northeast Florida Regional Council, which covers Regional District 4, was formed in 1977 by an inter local agreement, pursuant to Chapter 163, Florida Statutes, to “…establish an organization that will promote area-wide coordination and related cooperative activities of federal, state, and local governments ensuring a broad based regional organization that can provide a truly regional perspective and enhance the ability and opportunity of local governments to resolve issues and problems transcending their individual boundaries.”
Funding is provided from local, state and federal sources.
Board & Committee Meetings are held every other month beginning in October. Executive Committee Meetings are held in the alternate months.
