Outstanding Initiatives: Regional Planning
In an effort to promote and recognize high quality, innovative planning efforts in northwest Lower Michigan, projects were selected for the Northwest Michigan Regional Planning Awards in preparation for the statewide planning awards program offered by the Michigan Association of Planning. Award nominations for each category were accepted from individuals and local governments, and were reviewed by
the Planner’s Review and Advisory Committee, an advisory board to the Council of Governments.
Regional Planning award recipients demonstrate initiative, originality, innovation, effectiveness, quality, and leadership in planning for our communities.
Outstanding Leadership Award to Bernard Ware of Pleasonton Township in Manistee County.
