With public sentiment, nothing can fail. Without it, nothing can succeed.
Abraham Lincoln said these simple, yet profound words 150 years ago, but they are just as true today especially right here, right now in northwest lower Michigan.
Citizens from across the area are participating in an historic public process to determine our shared future. Its called The Grand Vision and its the largest, most far-reaching future planning process the region has ever seen.
After four years of planning and preparation, now is the time for you and your neighbors to get involved. Its easy. All you need to do is grab a Grand Vision scorecard and register your views by October 28. The result of this massive public input process will be wide consensus on a blueprint for land use and transportation for the next 50 years.
