The Planning District currently has a full time Executive Director and a part-time Planning Coordinator. The District is governed by a Steering Committee that consists of a Selectboard Member and a Planning Commission member from each of the three member Towns, a business representative from the Mad River Valley Chamber of Commerce, and a non-voting representative from Sugarbush Resort. The Central Vermont Regional Planning Commission (CVRPC) has a non-voting ex-officio seat. The three towns and Sugarbush fund the Planning District equally.
