Collectively, Alabama’s Regional Councils represent the entire State of Alabama by working to plan and implement strategies that create opportunities for development and prosperity.

Alabama’s regional councils exist to coordinate services for the growth of regions.  The work of the regional councils is shaped largely by a shared vision, values, goals, and objectives.  Each council takes numerous and varied actions to implement these values.
