Placemaking is essential to restoring Michigan to prosperity and creating communities that people love. It’s about turning “that community” into “my community.” On our next Prosperity Agenda radio show on News/Talk 760 WJR we discuss placemaking and economic development. My co-host for this show is Kirk Pinho, real estate reporter for Crain’s Detroit Business. Our guests are Tom Ivacko, Manager of the University of Michigan’s Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP); Mark Nickita is a Birmingham city commissioner and the former mayor of that city as well as co-founder of the award-winning design firm Archive Design Studio; and Auburn Hills City Manager Pete Auger, the newly elected president of the Michigan Local Government Management Association. The show airs 7 p.m. Feb. 26 on News/Talk 760 WJR, but you can listen and you can listen anytime at the League’s website or by subscribing to the FREE iTunes podcast. Learn more about the placemaking concept here as well as on this blog.
