The folks at the Michigan Land Use Institute spend much of their time thinking about growth in the Grand Traverse region. It's coming--how do we deal with it? According to www.thegrandvision.org, "Our region has experienced an explosive 26% growth in the last decade, and it is anticipated that we will double today's population within 40 years - making this the fastest growing region in the entire Midwest."
What should this place look like in 40 years?
You have an opportunity to be part of the discussion. For the past two years, the Grand Vision initiative has been hearing from locals. These voices have been collected into a few possible scenarios for you to vote on.
