Mission Statement

Our mission from the beginning has been to help Michigan avoid the patterns of suburban sprawl and over-development that cause traffic congestion, pollution, loss of community, rising costs to individuals and governments, and a deteriorating quality of life.

Description

The Institute is an independent, non-profit research, educational, and service organization operating in the public interest. Sources of funding are member contributions, grants, donations, and fees for services.

We value the integrity of local economic self-reliance, and endeavor to look well beyond the "jobs vs. environment" debate. Our goal is to help build a new kind of economy that celebrates the region's unique character, and recognizes the need to conserve open land and protect clean air and water.

The Institute focuses its work on land stewardship, energy development, resource protection, agriculture, transportation, and environmental and economic policy.

The Michigan Land Use Institute is home to programs like Taste the Local Difference and a cordinator for the Grand Vison Project.
