Grand Haven considers climate change in master plan

Oct 2, 2014

Grand Haven is one of several Michigan communities taking part in the 'Resilient Michigan' planning process.

In several Michigan communities, planning for a future affected by climate change is beginning. Monroe, East Jordan, Ludington, St. Joseph and Grand Haven are all taking part in a new program called “Resilient Michigan”.

The Land Information Access Association, or LIAA, is working with several statewide partner organizations to help local leaders to, quoting here, “plan communities that are more resilient to climate variability, extreme weather events and global economic challenges”.

Current State talks about “Resilient Michigan” with state climatologist Jeff Andreson, an associate professor of geography at MSU, and the mayor of Grand Haven, Geri McCaleb.
