Alabama Regional, Multi-State or Multi-County Agencies or Commissions, A - L

Collected by: Alabama State Archives

Archived since: Nov, 2008

Description:

This collection is composed of agencies and commissions that have authority over more than one county but generally are not state wide. Most of these are either regional planning commissions or water authorities. There are also efforts that cross state lines, like the Appalachian Regional Commission covering the entire southeast, and the Historic Chattahoochee Commission that works in both Georgia and Alabama. In addition, there are some statewide efforts, such as the County Commissioners of Alabama, the Alabama League of Municipalities, Alabama Farmer's Cooperative, Alabama Coastal Foundation, and the Alabama Humanities Foundations web sites.

Title: Historic Chattahoochee Commission (Alabama and Georgia) Website

URL: http://chattahoocheetrace.com/

Description: The Chattahoochee Trace is an eighteen county region in Alabama and Georgia promoted by the Historic Chattahoochee Commission (HCC). Organized in 1970, the HCC is charged with the responsibility of promoting tourism and historic preservation throughout this river corridor. In 1978 the Georgia General Assembly and the Alabama Legislature passed identical legislation to establish an interstate compact for the operation of the Commission. Final approval of the compact came in October of that year when the same bill cleared the U.S. Congress and President Carter signed it into law. Alabama counties include Barbour, Chambers, Dale, Henry, Houston, Lee, and Russell; Georgia counties include Chattahoochee, Clay, Decatur, Early, Harris, Muscogee, Quitman, Randolph, Seminole, Stewart, and Troup. Presently the Commission is funded by both Alabama and Georgia. The HCC is the first and only tourism/preservation agency in the nation with official authority to cross state lines to pursue goals common to all counties involved.
