Long Range Planning Committee

What is the Long Range Planning Committee?

The Arapahoe County Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) is a group of 25 county residents, business leaders and non-profit representatives convened specifically to help guide the Board of County Commissioners in making decisions about future county needs.

The LRPC is analyzing transportation issues and the future infrastructure requirements at the Arapahoe County Justice Center. The justice center includes the Arapahoe County jail and courthouse. The committee also is reviewing the current and projected fiscal situation of the county.

This is part of an on-going process to address the needs of our rapidly growing county. In 1985, the county population was 360,000. Today it is home to more than 650,000. And by 2030 the population is projected to grow to 800,000. This growth presents challenges for transportation and public safety, two top concerns voiced by Arapahoe County residents.

The LRPC – a citizen-based advisory task force – will review options for addressing long term service and financial needs, as well as how to meet the critical public safety and transportation needs posed by the aging facilities.

The committee held an introductory meeting on May 14. You’ll find the full schedule of upcoming meetings and a list of committee members below. All county residents are welcome to attend to hear the information presented and the committee discussion. The LRPC will make its recommendations later this summer.

The Board of County Commissioners will continue to engage the community in exploring the various options through various meetings, telephone town halls and digital outreach.
