Thousands of Resources, Ready to help.
On February 1, 2021, the Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC) Team formally launched the next evolution of RRC: RRC 2.0. The updated structure and corresponding best practices are the result of significant input from communities and partners including surveys and feedback groups organized in partnership with the Michigan Municipal Executives . Updates also incorporated RRC's on-the-ground experience working directly with communities to incorporate the RRC Best Practices into local processes over the past several years.
RRC 2.0 consists of two major updates:
Over the first half of 2021, the RRC Team has been hard at work updating resources and transitioning every community one-by-one to ensure each community’s unique factors are considered and that past records are maintained. Many communities have participated in one-on-one meetings with their RRC planner to understand the updates’ impact on their community and to identify next steps. As of July 1, nearly every community actively pursuring a designation has been transitioned. All remaining (i.e. already Cerified) communities should be transitioned by the end of August.
