Local Government Matters: Stepping Up in an Era of Uncertainty
Local government faces great challenges in the next several years. From climate change to crumbling roads and bridges, from increasing levels of wealth inequity to the opioid epidemic: the needs are great, but local government in Michigan has limited ability to raise revenues. Crucial opportunities, as well as grave risks, lie ahead. In this time of great uncertainty, there are opportunities for local government to take the lead in the areas of green energy, innovative inclusion, affordable housing, sustainable living, and more. We’ll discuss major national trends for local governments, see how they are mirrored (or not!) in Washtenaw County, and explore some creative, visionary responses to local challenges.
