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.
