APA Researchers Brief Michigan Land Use Leadership Council

Urge Council Members to "Fix What's Broken" Before Addressing Complex Issues

APA Researchers Stuart Meck, FAICP, and Marya Morris, AICP, briefed the 36-member Michigan Land Use Leadership Council on state planning statute reform initiatives at the council's second formal meeting in Lansing, Michigan, April 14, 2003. Michigan Gov. Jennifer Granholm established the Land Use Leadership Council, which consists of public and private sector representatives as well as state agency heads, in February. She charged the council with addressing the trends, causes, and consequences of unmanaged growth and development in Michigan. The council is to provide recommendations to the governor and the legislature designed to minimize the impact of current land use trends on Michigan's environment and economy. Former Governor William Milliken and former Attorney General Frank Kelley co-chair the group.
