Beginning MARCH 23, 2020, the Meramec Regional Planning Commission and the Phelps County Public Housing Agency office will be closed to the public, however we will still be working. In an effort to reduce Covid-19 exposure, we are using extra precautions to reduce person-to-person contact for the foreseeable future. Until further notice, we will not accept walk-ins or unscheduled appointments. We encourage everyone to try to conduct business with us by phone, email, mail, or fax to the extent possible. You may also drop paperwork into our drop box next to our backdoor while we are closed.
