Who is the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission?

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (Tri-County or TCRPC) is a public planning agency established in 1956, serving Clinton, Eaton, and Ingham counties in Mid-Michigan. Tri-County makes our region a more prosperous community by planning for a strong economy, reliable transportation, and sustainable infrastructure and natural resources.


We are dedicated leaders and innovators, connecting local organizations and governments to funding, technical assistance, data resources, and opportunities to discuss trends and challenges affecting the Greater Lansing area.


Tri-County works to meet the region's needs and goals in these 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.


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