Michigan Planner 

Michigan Planners

The Michigan Planner serves as medium for the exchange of ideas and information for the planning community in the state of Michigan. The Michigan Planner is published and distributed 6 times a year by the Michigan Association of Planning. Alternating monthly with the magazine, the Michigan Planner E-dition is published via e-mail to keep our members updated with the most current links and resources.

Subscription to the Michigan Planner and the Michigan Planner E-dition is available only as a membership benefit. The Michigan Planner is currently circulated to the Association’s 4,000 members. Click here to join today!



We welcome essays, articles, photos, calendar items, etc. Do not hesitate to send anything you think of interest. We may edit due to space limitations. Please send in electronic format only to avansen@planningmi.org.

Submissions for the Michigan Planner and E-dition are accepted throughout the year.
