ABOUT MICHIGAN CITIZEN PLANNER
Michigan Citizen Planner offers the Fundamentals of Planning and Zoning, a seven-session course leading to a certificate of completion awarded by Michigan State University Extension. The course is intended for local appointed and elected officials, zoning administrators and interested citizens.
The simple truth is that communities need to change the way they do community planning. Local officials have a responsibility to help their communities manage the impacts of economic change and be part of the solutions to challenges and issues their communities face. Local communities that proactively plan to succeed in the New Economy can improve their quality of life and lead Michigan’s recovery and transformation. Michigan Citizen Planner empowers local officials to shape the future of their communities by providing them with the tools and education they need to lead. Participants may also choose to continue on with the program and earn the Master Citizen Planner (MCP) credential by completing the Fundamentals of Planning and Zoning, an exam, and a capstone presentation. Master Citizen Planners receive course discounts, exclusive training opportunities and other incentives.
