The MIplace Partnership Initiative, in cooperation with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority, the Michigan Municipal League, the MSU Land Policy Institute, and MSU Extension Land Use Educators, prepared a six-module Placemaking Training Curriculum two years ago. Hundreds of training programs have been offered throughout Michigan since then to more than 11,000 people. This year, from March-May, the LPI and MSU Extension are co-hosting more than 30 training workshops to be offered in communities across Michigan on Placemaking Strategy Development.
