What We Do
The core function of Region Nine Development Commission (RNDC) is to assist the private, public and non-profit sectors within our jurisdictional boundaries of Blue Earth, Brown, Faribault, Le Sueur, Martin, Nicollet, Sibley, Waseca, and Watonwan Counties. RNDC’s governing board comprises local elected officials and public interest groups from the nine-county area. The Commission sets the agenda and approves the work plan for the agency. A secondary function is to provide a vehicle for implementing regional programs that cross over traditional jurisdiction and agency boundaries. The Commission also serves as a vehicle to work in cooperation with state and federal agencies to implant various programs on a regional basis.
