Who is the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission?

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) is a public planning agency that provides regionally coordinated planning efforts for for transportation, economic development, the environment, and sustainable land use in mid-Michigan.


Serving Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties, TCRPC works to meet the region's needs and goals in these four program areas by providing technical assistance to local governments, developing plans and policies, collecting and maintaining geographic data, coordinating intergovernmental solutions, and addressing trends and challenges affecting communities in the Greater Lansing area.


TCRPC is designated as the region’s Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) to coordinate federally funded transportation projects. The Commission is also certified by the U.S. Department of Commerce as the Economic Development District to facilitate federally funded economic development programs and initiatives, particularly in public infrastructure, in support of business locations and expansions.
