Michigan’s state agencies are working together across department lines to find ways for communities to get the most out of the limited funding available for placemaking related to community improvements. Officials from multiple state organizations will lead a session about leveraging state resources to create place during the Michigan Municipal League’s 2012 Convention taking place October 3-5 on Mackinac Island.

In this session, you’ll learn from the experiences of Boyne City and Portland about how it's possible to use multiple grant programs from various state departments to implement place-based initiatives. State agency staff from MSHDA, MDOT, MEDC, MDEQ and MDNR will be available to answer questions and discuss potential projects.

Check out the full Convention agenda and more detailed list of topics to be discussed, including a discussion on some of the controversial ballot issues that may appear on the November ballot, new laws regarding cell towers, how to secure grant funding for your community, how governments can address illegal drugs in their communities, collaborative innovation by Jeff DeGraff, walkable urbanism from Chris Leinberger, how to build resilient communities by Chuck Marohn, thinking global for local issues by Clarence Anthony, using art and creativity to drive our state forward by Jennifer Goulet, local finance issues and strategies, and community design and sustainability.
