Joint Economic Community Development Board
To foster communication about economic and community development among local governments and members of their communities, the Tennessee Growth Policy Act required local governments in each non-metropolitan county to establish Joint Economic and Community Development (JECD) Boards or request that an existing board be deemed sufficiently similar. These county boards and their executive committees must meet at least four times a year in order for local governments in each county to be eligible for state grants. Within this broad framework, these boards are free to focus their efforts tailored to their community.
Here in Montgomery County the JECD is hosted by the RPC and meets quarterly with its members. The JECD attempts to have each meeting focus on a different aspect of our economy annually such as; industrial development, housing and commercial growth, transportation, and Austin Peay/Ft. Campbell.
The members are chosen individually according to an inter-local agreement (May, 2000) by the city and county mayors and serve 4 years (up to 2 terms) or are co-terminus.

Land Regulation Advisory Committee
This committee is an advisory committee consisting of two city councilmembers, two county commissioners, and three citizens of Montgomery County doing business in development, home building, or real estate. The purpose of this committee is to review any text changes to the zoning codes or subdivision regulations before the RPC votes on them. This allows for a third party, non-binding review of text only. These members are appointed to 2-year non-repeating terms by their respective mayors. Citizen members are jointly appointed. This committee will meet twice annually, and additionally as needed. In addition to the nominated members the two mayors, chairman of the RPC, and RPC director are ex-officio members on the committee.
