When we plan for the Bloomington-Normal area, every goal and task presumes that opportunities and benefits are available to everyone in the community. The equitable treatment of all who live, work, or learn here is essential to planning for our urban community, transportation system, and rural residents and communities.

We rely on our community partners to help us plan well for social, ethnic, and economic communities in our region that have historically had little or no access to the benefits offered by the larger community. These partners represent and serve diverse and vital groups, including people with disabilities, ethnic and racial minorities, older people, young people, and families and individuals challenged by economic disadvantages.

In our principal plans, McLean County Regional Planning Commission integrates tracking and evaluation methods to confirm that access to the planning process and to plan implementation results are equitable in their outreach and impact. MCRPC is both obligated and dedicated to upholding the civil rights guarantees of the federal and state governments. We do this by outreach to the entire region, both through our direct activities and with the aid of partner agencies that represent and serve challenged communities.
