TOPIC:   "Intergrated Land Use Planning: Working Alone Together"  

As a state, Ms. Fluharty believes we failed to seriously analyze what impact 
1800 units of government, separate federal and state policies; along with a 
variety of state and federal agencies making independent decisions on land 
use might have on our future.  It took 20 years to overcome the relative 
negative reactions to the early efforts of managing our growth and preserving 
our state's magnificent natural resources.  We will hear examples of 
partnerships that are making changes in how parts of Michigan will grow in 
the future and some highlights of challenges yet to be addressed.

RSVP: By  Wednesday, May 5 to reserve your spot!
