The Michigan Vacant Property Campaign will be hosting a series of regional roundtables across the state and is accepting RSVPs for the four events scheduled thus far. The regional roundtables will bring together community members, stakeholders and leaders across sectors, providing a forum to examine specific vacant property issues and priorities. These events will also provide an opportunity for participants to learn about the MVPC and the technical assistance services the campaign offers to support and enhance local efforts to address issues posed by vacant properties. Roundtable locations include:
Oak Park: October 24, 2 – 4 PM at Sahara’s Restaurant
Marquette: November 1, 2 – 4 PM at Peter White Public Library
Grand Rapids: November 5, 2 – 4 PM at Inner City Christian Federation
Flint: December 4, 2 – 4 PM at Salem Housing CDC
More information about the roundtables can be found on the MVPC website. Whether you are a business owner or community resident, municipal representative or elected official, a member of a block club or neighborhood association, a part of a community development corporation or nonprofit organization, every community stakeholder is welcome. If you are interested in attending this event, please RSVP by sending an email to Claire Glenn at [email protected].
