We Love Where You Live.
Even in these uncharted and difficult times, the Michigan Municipal League is dedicated to inspiring positive change for Michigan’s greatest centers of potential: its communities.
What we do
From helping our communities in the fight against COVID-19 to leading the effort to build community wealth and expand opportunity for all, the League is a voice for proven policies that make Michigan a better place to live, work, and play.
The League supports intentional, block-by-block approaches to making resilient, adaptable communities that improve the human experience by building incomes for all, creating broader ownership of housing and business, and prioritizing inclusion. After a time of intense separation, we believe the need to create these meaningful outcomes is even more important.
Communities grow best from within. Community wealth is created by building and securing assets in communities, ensuring that ownership of those assets is more broadly and equitably distributed to all.
Communities are the centers of commerce, health care, education, and entertainment. Our communities are where people gather to learn, to exchange ideas, and to create the next big thing.
Why are we talking about this now?
We know our communities are being stretched in many new ways by the COVID-19 pandemic. Now is the right time to rethink all we do. Our focus on building community wealth is driven by successful communities that are growing, and in the process, are making their states more prosperous. As the COVID-19 threat is overcome, we will use our community wealth building focus to encourage innovations that will assist our communities—large and small—to grow, become stronger, and transform into even better places for their residents, businesses, and visitors.
