Not Open for Business: Why Disinvestment in Michigan Cities… | 2018 Mackinac Policy Conference

As Michigan looks to create greater economic opportunities and attract top talent from around the world, investing in cities must remain a top priority. However, the state continually ranks dead last in the country for funding infrastructure and services that improve citizens’ overall quality of life. This session will explore Michigan’s broken municipal financing system, discuss the value of vibrant communities to the state’s economy, and lay the groundwork for a statewide education campaign calling for a funding model that encourages renewed investment in communities. Introduction: Ridgway White, President, Charles Stewart Mott Foundation
