Workshop: The Art of Partnerships: A Decade of Placemaking in Michigan

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This interactive session will explore how the intensive efforts of statewide and local partners have broadened the scale and impact of placemaking in Michigan.

By building local capacity, reforming state policies and funding priorities, and creating new funding options, panelists from the Michigan Municipal League and Howell Downtown Development Authority have helped shift placemaking from a series of one-off local projects into an integrated planning and economic development approach for the entire state.

Join these panelists to discover how Michigan placemakers have built trust, buy-in, and effective organization to unleash the power of partnerships.  Attendees will discuss how these and other models of outreach, building partnerships, and project funding have helped their own communities adopt and grow placemaking strategies.
