Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham

Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham (RPC) is one of twelve regional councils in Alabama. The organization serves member governments in the six county region of north-central Alabama. The RPC's Transportation Department is staff to the Birmingham MPO.

The RPC has been very involved in trails and greenways issues on regional planning as well as on behalf of local communities.

Trail Training: RPC has hosted a trail design workshop with Mike and Jan Riter of Trail Design Specialists, Inc., of Atlanta. They have extensive experience on trail projects and IMBA mountain bike projects as well as the IMBA Trail Care Crew.

Design Guidelines: Jefferson County Greenways Master Plan has a section on trail design standards in sensitive Land Trust properties. An MPO-adopted Design Guidelines report was developed by Greenways, Inc. when the original Bike/Ped Plan was adopted by the Birmingham MPO.
