Spring Institute Reboot!

MAP’s 2020 Spring (for this year, Winter) Institute delivers the national experts, state leaders, and local stories that reveal the solutions we can scale to our own communities. 

The post-recession rate of economic rebound over the last decade in Michigan municipalities varied across the state, and progress will be further stymied by the COVID pandemic.  But all communities are similarly effected by decades long lack of urban policy, and  reduced federal and state support for cities.  While interventions like placemaking, tax abatements and incentives, and the RRC program might nudge investment, we must look  holistically at how we grow our cities and towns into places where economic prosperity is inclusive. Planners can influence state and local development policy by demanding a shift in practice to be more equitable and inclusive, by contemporizing master plans to amplify equity and inclusion, and by thinking creatively to innovate.  Intentional  planning can help ensure that economic development efforts yield positive results for all residents.
