Northwest Michigan Regional Prosperity Plan

 

Framework Summary Document


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. 

The Framework is a starting point for community discussions and action around important community development issues. While it does not, and cannot, comprehensively address the enormous breadth of community data and issues associated with these issues, ongoing community participation, deliberation, and action will help to make this document a valuable resource that can support community planning and action over the long term.
