MEDC Redevelopment Ready Communities Program

I lead a team of consultants as the prime Technical Assistance provider to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s (MEDC) Redevelopment Ready Communities Program. Since 2014, I have worked hand-in-hand with RRC staff creating and teaching training programs on their Redevelopment Ready Best Practices. I teach sessions on Plans and Public Participation to officials, staff, and agencies across the state multiple times each year.

I collaborate with RRC staff on scopes of work and budgets to provide an MEDC-funded match for communities working towards certification under the program. Depending on the location of the community and type of work involved, I draw from my network of subconsultant experts to create a process that is tailored to each community’s needs.

Most of my project work stems from my contract with RRC. A sampling of projects is listed below, with several linking to their own project page.
