Strong Towns recently named Traverse City, MI as the winner of its ‘Strongest Town 2017’ contest.
Here is what Strong towns has to say about #TCMI, who beat out 15 other great communities in the online competition.
“Throughout the contest, we learned about Traverse City’s fun-loving, active population that takes pride in its local businesses and collaboratively addresses challenges. Traverse City stood out as a town where multi-modal transportation is key, where small businesses thrive, and where natural beauty is beloved and prioritized.
While it’s a popular tourist destination, this contest also made clear that Traverse City is alive with activity all year round. Traverse City is meeting challenges like providing affordable housing head-on, with new provisions for accessory dwelling units, decreasing building and parking regulations, and encouraging creative development styles.”
Strong Towns is a great organization and Traverse city is a great choice for 2017.
