Why Invest in a Redevelopment Ready Community®?

In today’s competitive economy, we know developers and businesses can invest anywhere. Certified Redevelopment Ready Communities® (RRC) signal that locating a new business or growing an existing one within their municipality is straightforward and streamlined.

Certified communities have removed barriers to development by implementing best practices that:

  • Target specific areas for reinvestment
  • Regulate for development that supports the vision of a master plan
  • Assist officials and staff to understand their role in redevelopment
  • Allow for mixed-use by right in specific zoning districts
  • Provide development materials easily accessible online
  • Proactively market redevelopment opportunities
  • Create a business-friendly environment


Redevelopment Ready Communities® is a certification program available to any community in Michigan. Communities most suited for the program are those with existing areas of concentrated development or those planning for such development.
