The National Association of County Planners

The NACP is one of two national organizations dedicated to the evolving and challenging future of county planning. We have members throughout the entire United States, who are actively involved in county planning and raising awareness on land use issues.

The purpose of the National Association of County Planners (NACP) is to stimulate and contribute to the development, improvement, and recognition of county planning as a viable process in county government. NACP does this by providing a forum for county planners to disseminate information on the characteristics of the county planning function and to provide input on NACo policies that address county planning issues at the local level. NACP members exchange ideas and experiences related to county planning through NACo events, the NACP news, listserv, website, and Facebook.

The NACP works to strengthen the relationship between county planners, elected officials, and other related county personnel while working closely with other allied planning organizations such as the County Planning Division of the American Planning Association.

NACP is an affiliate of the National Association of Counties (NACo).

We have members throughout the entire United States, who are actively involved in county planning and raising awareness on land use issues.

Join today, and help advocate for county planning at the local, state, and national level!

NACP membership is $40, payable to the National Association of County Planners.
