45 Years Logo

April 2017 marks the Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission's 45th anniversary of planning for northeast Wisconsin. The Commission was created on April 21, 1972, by Governor Lucey under Wisconsin Statutes s. 66.945 (re-titled 66.0309) at the request of Brown, Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, Marinette, Oconto, and Sheboygan counties. In December 1973, Florence County joined the Commission, bringing the total number of member counties to eight.

For nearly a half-century, the Commission has collaborated with all levels of government, public and private entities, and citizens to plan for future growth, to protect the environment, to expand economic opportunities, and to provide a safe and efficient transportation network. The work the Commission does today is based on the solid foundation of these experiences and partnerships, which have been built within the region.

Recalling how far the region has come over the last 45 years can give us all a renewed sense of purpose in our respective mission:  "Providing opportunities and cooperative solutions to foster healthy and thriving communities within the region."
