About this grant

The Michigan Land Use Institute works to strengthen Michigan’s urban and rural communities by engaging the public and informing decisionmakers through a combination of research and public engagement. With prior Mott support, the institute has provided education, strategic communications, and technical support to encourage broad-based citizen input into development of the Grand Vision, a regional land-use and transportation framework to guide future growth in the six-county area surrounding Traverse City. With renewed support, the institute will continue its efforts to coordinate public participation in the implementation of this groundbreaking regional development plan.
