A Brief History
In 1969, Lake of the Ozarks Council of Local Governments was commissioned by the State of Missouri as the Lake of the Ozarks regional planning commission. The region serves four counties that surround and provide direct access to the Lake.
Regional Planning Commissions began to develop following enactment of the State and Regional Planning and Community Development Act, adopted by State Legislature in 1965. This act created the Missouri Department of Community Affairs and authorized the governor to create regional planning commissions upon the petition of local governments (Revised Statutes of Missouri, 1969, ed.).
Regional planning is designed to create the environment in which communities can grow and expand successfully through the comprehensive planning of:
*Public and Waste Water
*Living Conditions & Environmental Health
