Status Report: Analysis of the Boundaries of Logical Planning Regions

This morning, the Office of Policy and Management (OPM) presented a status report to the legislature’s Planning and Development Committee on its analysis of the boundaries of logical planning regions, in accordance with Section 249 of Public Act 13-247.  The report provides an overview of OPM’s method of analysis, which resulted in preliminary recommendations for the proposed designation/redesignation of planning region boundaries.

OPM expects there to be further refinement of the proposed boundaries between now and January 1, 2014.  Upon completion of its analysis on January 1, 2014, OPM must notify the chief executive officer of each municipality located in a planning region in which the boundaries are proposed for redesignation, so that the municipality has the opportunity to formally appeal the redesignation.  Upon conclusion of OPM’s analysis and any subsequent appeals, the member municipalities of each planning region are required to take the necessary steps to create a regional council of governments by no later than January 1, 2015.

OPM’s status report can be viewed here.
