WELCOME TO THE WPPDC
The West Piedmont Planning District Commission (WPPDC) is a regional planning organization serving the counties of Franklin, Henry, Patrick, and Pittsylvania; the cities of Danville and Martinsville; and the Town of Rocky Mount. Formed in 1970, the WPPDC is one of twenty-one state designated planning districts in the Commonwealth of Virginia charged with developing collaborative regional approaches to issues of greater than local impact including, but not limited to, economic development, transportation, and legislative priorities. We celebrate our 50th anniversary this year and are happy to have served our region all this time.
The WPPDC seeks to carry out its mission by facilitating regional thinking and dialogue among the district's local governments, K-12 and higher educational institutions, economic development organizations, workforce development, and other key stakeholders. In other states, organizations like PDC's are known as regional councils, regional commissions, and councils of government.
