Your Regional Commission
Strengthening the Region Through Collaboration
The New River Valley Regional Commission is an organization comprised of 12 local governments and two universities for the purpose of encouraging collaboration to address regionally significant issues and opportunities. Also known as PDC 4, our organization encompasses the counties of Floyd, Giles, Montgomery, and Pulaski, and the City of Radford.
The Regional Commission convenes community leaders to build relationships and capacity across the region; provides technical assistance to members; serves as a liaison between local, state and federal governments; and implements services when requested by members.
If you’d like to know more or get involved, contact us and we’ll be sure to reach out to you as soon as possible.
