§ 140.61. Purpose

The legislature finds that problems of growth and development in urban and rural regions of the state so transcend the boundary lines of local government units that no single unit can plan for their solution without affecting other units in the region; that various mulit-parish planning activities conducted under various laws of the United States are being conducted in an uncooridinated manner; that intergovernmental cooperation on a regular basis is an effective means of pooling the resources of local government to approach common problems; and that the assistance of the state is needed to make the most effective use of local, state, federal, and private programs in serving the citizens of such urban and rural regions.
