Framework for Our Future: A Regional Prosperity Plan for Northwest Michigan
The Framework for Our Future: A Regional Prosperity Plan for Northwest Michigan is a regional resource for communities working to meet local goals. The Framework was developed, with participation from a broad range of community leaders, stakeholders, and the public, as part of Michigan’s Regional Prosperity Initiative. It includes a wealth of information and tools that all parts of the community – the public, community leaders, businesses, nonprofits, public agencies, and statewide stakeholders – can use to supplement their local deliberation, planning, and decision-making processes.

Networks Northwest always proves to be a valued resource for our local government planning efforts. No organization does a better job of convening partners, promoting collaboration, and reporting on the data than does Networks NorthwestTy Wessell, Leelanau County Commissioner
