Our vision is for the Upper Peninsula area to become a progressive model for sustainable urbanism – that is, a vibrant place where people want to live, work and play because of its unique local character and strong emphasis on smart development, sustainability, resiliency, affordability, community and mobility.
We will accomplish this by encouraging participation from residents, property owners, businesses, developers, non-profit organizations and government in a thoughtful planning initiative designed to combine existing community assets with innovative planning techniques and new projects.
