Local Gov't Services

WMSRDC annually assists a few selected communities in preparing their land use plans, recreation plans, comprehensive master plans, GIS mapping, other locally based plans, and special projects

As a recent special project, WMSRDC partnered with Michigan Association of Regions and Michigan State University to hold a virtual regional ARPA local government funding workshop On October 12, 2021.

Meeting follow-up resources including the presentation handout, recording, and related workshop products, such as the regional needs and collaborations boards and a table of MSU resources and contacts to support local government federal revenue spending can be found in the link below:

Please access all ARPA Regional Meeting materials by visiting: https://sites.google.com/msu.edu/arpameetings

Additional content will be added to the site within the next week or two, including a generalized Frequently Asked Questions resource from the workshop series.

Communities are encouraged to work collaboratively with other units of government and organizations in the region in spending local fiscal recovery funds to maximize overall benefit to the broader community and the state as a whole. Contact WMSRDC to further the conversation!
