Central Massachusetts Regional Planning Commission
Central Mass Regional Planning Commission (CMRPC) is the designated regional planning entity for the southern two-thirds of Worcester County. In 2012, CMRPC began studying the region’s agricultural economy. CMRPC is now working with farmers, institutions, markets, and others to explore how to improve the efficiency of moving products from farm to market. Promoting Central Mass Grown has been a key aspect of that. CMRPC is assessing the feasibility of various agricultural schools, programs, and business ventures in western Worcester County.
