Many communities in Michigan are facing challenges meeting their housing needs. This 90-minute program from MSU Extension, In partnership with The Pokagon Fund, will discuss a wide catalog of proven zoning and policy options that can help increase the amount and variety of housing stock in a community.

To plan for and implement solutions to these housing challenges, it is important to accurately define issues facing your community and choose actions that align to those issues. This program will discuss zoning and policy tools that can help increase the amount and variety of housing stock in a community. We will present rural, suburban, and urban housing considerations and share examples from Michigan related to zoning regulations and policies that support ‘missing middle’ housing, attainable workforce options, and more.
