      Flint, Midland among 8 cities to get development help

      Flint and Midland are among eight cities that will receive development help.

      Eight Michigan cities have been selected to receive technical assistance with key economic development projects.

      The Michigan Municipal League this week announced that Cadillac, Detroit, Flint, Kalamazoo, Holland, Jackson, Marquette, and Midland will participate in PlacePlans. The cities are the second group selected and were picked as part of a statewide application process.

      PlacePlans is a joint effort between the League and Michigan State University to help communities design and plan for major projects. The PlacePlans are done with support from the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and other state efforts.

      The first round of PlacePlans work concluded earlier this year and involved projects in Allegan, Alpena, Dearborn and Sault Ste. Marie.
