The Next Idea
There are a handful of things we in Michigan are proud of and value about ourselves and our state. We work hard. We make things. We love our Great Lakes and outdoors. We are proud of our education institutions and what they represent.
We want to be proud again of our Michigan communities as great places to live, work and raise a family. In order to get there, however, we have a big problem that must first be fixed. Many of our communities, particularly our older core cities and suburbs, are literally falling apart, with no way to pay for their rebuilding.
