Rural Broome Counts (RBC) is a needs-assets assessment project that takes a deeper look at the 11 rural townships in Broome County (townships with 200 people per square mile or less). RBC completed its initial assessment, and has released a full report for use by all stakeholders. RBC will be updated every three years so that we can track rural Broome County’s status and provide information for other planning efforts such as the Broome County Community Health Assessment, Aging Services Plan, Coordinated Transportation Plan, and others.
