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.

The purpose of this training is to assist your community with the development of a draft placemaking strategy. This option 2 workshop involves two parts and runs six (6) hours.

  1. The first part provides training from Modules 1-3 of the MIplace Placemaking Curriculum.
  2. During the second part, we will supply facilitators to assist representatives of your community in developing a draft placemaking strategy.

This workshop is for city councils and township boards; local, county and regional planning commissioners and staff; local economic development staff and other interested stakeholders. Communities will need multiple participants attending to maximize synergy and benefit for the community.

For those who attend both parts, the Michigan Citizen Planner is offering six (6) CEUs (continuing education units), one (1) CEU/ one (1) hour of instruction, to Master Citizen Planners for their participation.
