The Bay-Lake Regional Planning Commission (Bay-Lake RPC) is a multi-service agency within Wisconsin that provides a variety of federal, state, and local programs. The Bay-Lake RPC is a public agency formed by executive order of the Governor.

The region has over 400 miles of coastal shoreline along Lake Michigan and Green Bay, and contains 12 major watershed areas that drain into the waters of Green Bay and Lake Michigan.
