Who We Are

The Tri-County Regional Planning Commission (TCRPC) is an organization of local governments and agencies that foster cooperative efforts to resolve problems, develop policies, and implement plans to achieve shared, regional goals. They work to benefit citizens of the mid-Michigan tri-county area of Clinton, Ingham, and Eaton counties while maximizing the efficient use of its resources.

Development of the Region's 2045 Metropolitan Transportation Plan is Underway!

Moving Mid-Michigan is the 2045 Regional Metropolitan Transportation Plan (MTP) that will detail our vision for the region's transportation system. The Plan is a long-range outlook on mid-Michigan's future transportation needs, and it plays a critical role in identifying projects and strategies that will improve and maintain roads, transportation infrastructure, our economy, the environment, and citizen safety and connectivity.

Everyone has the opportunity to be heard, get involved in the planning process, and be a part of the future. There will be several public open houses where you can share opinions and ideas, and you can take our survey for a chance to win a $50 transportation-related gift card here.
