As a follow-up to the successful Economics of Place: The Importance of Building Communities Around People, the Michigan Municipal League will release a new book in September detailing some incredible placemaking projects in the state. The book highlights individual successes and places emphasis on lessons learned so that other communities can use the stories for motivation and guidance. The continued reinvention of cities and villages in the state provides the perfect backdrop for gathering meaningful knowledge.
Be ready for surprise contributions from some “accidental” placemakers and urbanists, too.
Stay tuned to this blog for news about the release.
