Region 6 Housing Development and Implementation Strategy

The I-69 Thumb Region recently released the Region 6 Housing Development and Implementation Strategy which was funded through the University of Michigan’s Defense Manufacturing Assistance Program. There are several action items in this report that can be implemented immediately and there are several that require additional support for implementation. Solving this critical issue will not occur overnight, in the next week, month or year. Having a plan to move forward along with strong partnerships brings the I-69 Thumb Region years ahead of other communities looking to solve the same issue!
