Planning district commission oversight; Virginia Area Development Act. Gives the Department of Housing and Community Development increased authority to oversee planning district commissions (PDCs), including making funding recommendations for each PDC, administering the Regional Cooperation Incentive Fund and providing technical assistance to PDCs. The Department is required to review the boundaries of PDCs every 10 years with an initial review to be conducted prior to July 1, 1996, and to prepare a biennial report for the General Assembly, the Governor and various state agencies concerning activities of PDCs. The bill amends the Virginia Area Development Act by focusing PDCs' efforts toward regional activities by (i) renaming the Act as the Regional Cooperation Act, (ii) explicitly stating that one of the purposes of the Act is to encourage regional cooperation and (iii) creating a Regional Cooperation Incentive Fund, administered by the Department, to provide matching grants to PDCs. Other changes include providing that a PDC may be composed solely of local elected officials, requiring preparation of a regional strategic plan in lieu of the current regional comprehensive plan, requiring PDCs to report annually to the Department regarding their activities, allowing localities to join additional PDCs without approval from the General Assembly and making numerous other housekeeping changes. These are recommendations of a JLARC report on planning district commissions. HB 1682 is identical.
