Michigan Economic Development Corporation Announces Kick-off of Redevelopment Ready Communities Program

Posted on March 7, 2013 by Dene Westbrook

The Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced the first round of communities to participate in the statewide launch of the Redevelopment Ready Communities® program (RRC) which will help local municipalities establish a sound foundation for redevelopment to occur in their communities.

RRC is a certification program promoting effective redevelopment strategies through a set of best practices. The program measures and then certifies communities that integrate transparency, predictability and efficiency into their daily development practices. The RRC certification is a formal recognition that a community has a vision for the future and the fundamental practices in place to get there.
