This could be your last chance for FREE PLACEMAKING TRAINING!

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 over 11,000 persons.

Have you been trained yet? If not, don’t wait any longer! Effective placemaking has the potential to transform a place from somewhere you cannot wait to leave into a place you cannot wait to be! Perhaps more importantly, Strategic Placemaking is a process to make a place very attractive to talented workers. These are the folks that everyone wants to attract to their community, so it can be more globally competitive. In other words, quality places attract economic development. Placemaking is all about creating quality places.

From March through May there will be over 30 training programs offered in communities across Michigan on Strategic Placemaking. On Tuesday, May 5, 2015 from 9:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m., the City of Frankfort will be one of them! The workshop will begin with 3 hours of instruction from Modules 1-3 of the curriculum, and then after a meal on your own, is a 3-hour workshop where communities can work with facilitators to prepare placemaking strategies unique to their community.

This session will work best when most of the planning commission and some elected officials and staff attend from each participating community.
