A goal (and associated strategies and actions) of the 2017-2021 edition of the Region 2 Planning Commission Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy (CEDS) is the identification and mapping of cultural and recreational resources.
A first step in identifying major community facilities (i.e., cultural and recreational resources) is to map existing land use patterns utilizing property assessment categories (i.e., existing land use). Many cultural and recreational resources have an exempt status, making them easier to identify. It was further noted that the property assessment data can also be utilized by counties and municipalities as they create economical and up-to-date existing land use maps for inclusion in master plans and other planning documents.

Please view the Economic Development webpage to download reports regarding the Counties of Jackson and Lenawee and the entire Region 2 Area as they become available. Please note that the reports can also be generated for your local government upon the request of the local government.
