Alabama Regional and Local Government Agencies

Collected by: Alabama State Archives

Archived since: Nov, 2008


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.
