For communities to manage the impacts of economic change, they need to change their community planning efforts. Local communities that plan proactively in the new economy can improve their quality of life. The Michigan Citizen Planner Program empowers local officials to shape the future of their communities by providing them with the latest tools and technical knowledge and information they need.

Macomb MSU Extension is sponsoring the newly updated Michigan Citizen Program in Macomb County. This certificate-based course begins Thursday, March 21, 2019 running through May 2, 2019.
