“As Michigan’s leading advocate for placemaking, we know that any successful economic development strategy must include efforts to foster thriving communities. We appreciate the Governor and legislature passing a budget that makes a significant investment in revenue sharing. This investment in place aligns with Michigan’s goals for growth and supports prosperity for every community in our state,” said Dan Gilmartin, Executive Director and CEO of the Michigan Municipal League. “These resources will continue to ensure that we can invest in public safety and placemaking that enhances and promotes community engagement, well-being, and quality of life. With the budget complete, it is now essential to support and enact policy to ensure these resources are secure and can grow in the long term.”
