Welcome to the official website of the Long Island Regional Planning Council (LIRPC). Please consider this website a comprehensive resource for the LIRPC and the organization’s initiatives. We encourage you to visit often for new information as the site will be updated frequently.

What is the Long Island Regional Planning Council and what do we do?

The LIRPC, formed in 2008 from the original Long Island Regional Planning Board, is established pursuant to New York State General Municipal Law by founding Legislation in Nassau and Suffolk Counties for the purpose of promoting the physical, economic and social health and well-being of the Long Island region and its residents. The main goal of the LIRPC is to educate Long Island’s officials, stakeholders and residents on key issues affecting the quality of life on Long Island, and to serve as a catalyst for action by proposing immediate and long-term implemental solutions for these issues of regional concern.

The LIRPC routinely meets the first Tuesday of each month and encourages all Long Islanders to attend our meetings and public forums, as the input from our residents is both recognized and valued.
