The Michigan Municipal League represents Michigan’s cities and villages and is constantly visiting them. Here are some photos of the League’s recent visit to Traverse City Michigan. During this visit in July of 2012 we strolled up and down the downtown shopping district and made stops at the renovated State Theatre and Traverse City Opera House. It was a Wednesday afternoon in the middle of summer and downtown was super busy with shoppers, walkers, bicyclists and people just hanging out. The League believes that Michigan’s cities are key to the state’s economic turnaround. Learn more at mml.org and mml.org/placemaking. For more about placemaking go to the League’s website mml.org and visit the page about our Center for 21st Century Communities: www.mml.org/resources/21c3/about.html. You can also visit a placemaking blog by League CEO Dan Gilmartin called www.economicsofplace.com/. In addition, the League’s 2012 Convention taking place in October on Mackinac Island will focus on how Michigan communities of all shapes and sizes can implement placemaking assets. It’s easier than you may think. For details on the 2012 Tools of Placemaking Convention go to convention.mml.org (www.mml.org/events/annual_convention/).
