Green Lake Greenways

Thank you for East Central Regional Planning's leadership with SRTS. As a citizen advocate who wants the best for every member of the community you have continued to provide the education and support for us to succeed as a local SRTS program. I attended the SRTS National Conference in 2011 and felt a strong sense of pride of all that we as a state, region and community have begun and hope to continue. We ranked with the best.

Art Bahr

Village Administrator - Gresham

The sign inventory and management system turned out wonderful. Without the assistance from ECWRPC this project would have cost the residents of Gresham thousands of dollars and more than likely not completed for quite some time. It was truly a job well done! Thank you for the past and future support and assistance. It has been a pleasure working with your staff!

Dave Tebo

Administrator - Town of Greenville

Many of the land use documents the Town of Greenville has completed over the last 10 years have been prepared with the assistance and expertise of East Central Planners. Our 2004 GreenPrint Plan, 2009 Comprehensive Plan and 2011 Land Stewardship Strategy were all done with East Central’s help, either through technical assistance or by contract. Their creativity, commitment to a quality product and sincere interest in the job at hand has made East Central our natural choice when seeking technical planning assistance over the last decade.
