The Central Alabama Regional Planning and Development Commission, or CARPDC (pronounced kärp-?dek), is one of twelve regional commissions in the State that was established to provide technical assistance to local governments in the areas of planning and development. We partner with communities in Autauga, Elmore, and Montgomery Counties to support local governments in the areas of Community and Economic Development, Planning, and Housing projects, policies, and initiatives.
Every ten years, a census is conducted to count every person living in the U.S. The U.S. Constitution requires this count, and the numbers have a big impact on communities.
Having an accurate census count for Alabama is vital to many programs that affect our state, including areas of health care, food, education, roads and bridges, congressional representation and much more.
