The Michigan Association of Planning's information, education and advocacy efforts are guided by board adopted land use and planning policies. The MAP Government Relations Committee, a board committee, is charged with developing the Chapter's land use policy.
Historically, American Planning Association (APA) policies were used as a template, but customized and modified by the Government Relations Committee and the MAP board to align more closely with Michigan's unique characteristics. After vetting policies with our membership and other land use experts, the MAP Board adopts the policy.
The board adopted land use and planning policies guide the work of staff with publication and education program content, and provide direction for lobbying and advocacy in Lansing.
