Planning Michigan 2022

October 12 - 14, 2022

Mission Point Resort, Mackinac Island, hosted by the American Planning Association, Michigan Chapter

Join us on Mackinac Island at the Planning Michigan 2022 Conference!

This conference is a top source of best planning practices for professional planners, community development professionals, planning commissioners, and zoning and elected officials. Come hear OHM Advisors Principal Nina Kelly, AICP, and transportation planning expert Eric Dryer debate the interesting question whether public involvement, which is typically billed as an essential part of every planning project, actually harms the process. What happens when a small but vocal subset of the population consistently speaks out against critical housing, infrastructure and public amenity projects? And what solutions can planners use to address the inequities inherent in gathering community input?

Session Title: Are Public Meetings Hurting Planning?
Date and Time: Thursday, 10/13 at 10:30 a.m.*
Presenters: Nina Kelly and Eric Dryer
