Connecting the community

Greater Lansing leaders work together to bring out the best in our region.

When people think Lansing, they envision the state capitol and the bustle surrounding it. When they actually get to Lansing, they discover the diversity of thriving cities and townships - the urban and rural character they bring.

Recognizing this, the Lansing Regional Chamber of Commerce (LRCC) is uniting leaders from Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties along with Michigan State University to promote the region. Creating consensus is expected to enhance the local, state and federal lobbying power of Mid-Michigan.

Who We Are

The Capitol Council of Governments (CAPCOG) is a partnership with Clinton, Eaton and Ingham Counties, the LRCC and Michigan State University.

Our Mission

The mission of CAPCOG is to work collaboratively between parties to support regional economic development and growth opportunities for the Greater Lansing region at the State Legislature.

Our Priorities

Infrastructure Investment and Public Transportation

  • Investing in all aspects of our logistical infrastructure including highways, bridges, waterways, transit, railways, runways and drains, which are crucial to economic growth.
  •  Ensure safe and reliable transportation to connect the Greater Lansing region’s employers and employees.

Attract and Retain Talent

  • Advocate for initiatives that foster innovation, entrepreneurship, skilled trades and promote economic opportunity to attract and retain talent.

Regulatory Streamlining

  • Support initiatives that provide local units of government incentive to cooperate between each other to streamline delivery of services to avoid duplication.
  • Work to eliminate unnecessary regulations that impede economic growth and job creation.
