Thriving Communities / Projects



Great Towns

Michigan’s unique towns thrive when investments are spent wisely into existing main streets and town centers and when developers are encouraged to build homes near shops, schools and jobs.


Transportation Choices

Families overwhelmingly support building better, safer ways to move throughout northwest lower Michigan, whether by car, bus, bike, or foot. We propose solutions that ease traffic and increase everyone’s ability to get around.


All Aboard, Michigan

We’re working with citizens, groups, and public officials to build a prosperous, sustainable future for the state: one that includes extensive passenger rail, strong urban transit connections, and better, safer streets.
