Opportunities are now underway to receive comprehensive placemaking training through the MIPlace Partnership Initiative.
As noted in an earlier post the League, along with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), the MSU Land Policy Institute, and other statewide organizations has launched the MIPlace Partnership Initiative. One element of the initiative is a ‘Placemaking Curriculum’ with the goal of helping Michigan communities learn more about and implement placemaking as a strategic economic development. The six-module curriculum from the MI-Place Partnership can jump-start your community’s placemaking creativity.
Placemaking Curriculum Training is being offered right now by nonprofit placemaking partners such as Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) and Michigan Recreation and Parks Association (MRPA). Visit the MIPlace website at miplace.org and click on the events tab to learn more.
And remember, you'll have a chance at the League's upcoming Capitol Conference to learn more about the curriculum and learn what your community can do to help restore prosperity to Michigan and enhance the quality of life for everyone in your community.
