For six decades, the Valleys Planning Council (VPC) has been at the forefront of land use planning and preservation techniques in northwestern Baltimore County. Our efforts have yielded lasting, positive impacts that will serve citizens for generations to come.

VPC is a 501(c)3 non-profit membership organization established in 1962. Its mission is to conserve land and resources, preserve historic character and maintain the rural feel and land uses in the valleys. The work of the VPC is guided by a 40-member board and 11-member executive committee. It also employs an executive director, a development director, and an executive assistant.
