Programs and Services

Click the above link to access a description of the WMRPC's ongoing programs and services, as well as special work projects.  Ongoing programs include work for the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) and the Michigan Department of Transportation (MDOT).  We also collect and disseminate Census and other data resources, have in-house GIS and mapping expertise, have an extensive information and library collection, and offer a variety of technical assistance and planning services for our members – and much more!


Special work projects have included Hazard Mitigation Plans for four counties and one city, a four-phase study of shoreline communities in Allegan and Ottawa counties, and an inventory and analysis of economic development opportunities within the region.

Goals and Objectives

2019 Goals

Each year the West Michigan Regional Planning Commission (WMRPC) sets the course for the following year by establishing a list of focus areas.  This makes the best use of our Commission, staff, and resources – and is a great way to set the overall policies for the year. The list at the above link identifies the goals and objectives for 2016.  While it is a fairly comprehensive list, it is not intended to indicate that the WMRPC will not take on additional programs or projects during the year if opportunities arise.  Let us know if there is anything we can do to help your community.
