Welcome to the Region 2 Planning

Welcome to the Region 2 Planning Commission (R2PC)

The Region 2 Planning Commission is a voluntary local governmental association serving Hillsdale, Jackson and Lenawee counties in south-central Michigan.  Region 2 serves as a planning, research, and advisory resource to its member units of government.  Staff provides a variety of professional planning services which benefit member communities:
  • Transportation Planning
  • Economic Development
  • Community Planning Assistance

What can the R2PC do for your community?

The Region 2 Planning Commission (R2PC) was created to assist its member units of government.  The most visible outcome of this charge is the community planning assistance provided by staff.  Region 2 planners have been helping local governments to develop, adopt, and implement master plans, zoning ordinances, and other planning and zoning resources for decades.

Although the other services provided by the R2PC may not be as visible as community planning assistance, they are just as important to the region and your municipality.  For example, the behind-the-scenes work performed by Region 2 staff facilitates the acquisition and expenditure of federal and state funding in two key areas throughout the three counties:

  • Transportation.  The R2PC serves as the Jackson metropolitan area’s MPO, which facilitates all federal and state funding for transportation improvements throughout Jackson County and the Region 2 Rural Task Force, which facilitates the allocation of rural federal and state transportation funds throughout the entire region.
  • Economic Development.  Region 2 planners have been working with the U.S. Economic Development Agency to establish Region 2 as an Economic Development District (EDD) which will make local governments eligible for federal economic development funding.

The organizaton and its staff has provided planning services to member units of government for over five decades,  Please refer to the following webpages for more information on the proessional planning services provided by the staff of the Region 2 Planning Commission as well as the organization and history and background of the organization:
