Northwest Michigan Regional Prosperity Initiative
What is the Regional Prosperity Initiative?
Michigan’s “Regional Prosperity Initiative (RPI),” as initiated by Governor Snyder and signed into law as a part of the FY 2014 budget (59 PA 2013), encourages local private, public and non-profit partners to identify regionally aligned growth and investment strategies for Lansing to support, not the other way around. It also provides the framework for all state departments to share common service areas and support individual regional prosperity plans. Bottom-line is that the RPI is focused on streamlining state services and highlighting the regionally defined goals and strategies that will further our region’s success. DETAILS.
Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.Susan Odom, Chair, Suttons Bay Township Planning Commission
