Redevelopment Ready Communities

Under a contract with the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), WMSRDC is available to provide technical assistance to local communities that are in the process of pursuing Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC) certification. The RRC program, offered by the MEDC, is available to communities across the state. It is a voluntary, no-cost certification program designed to promote effective redevelopment strategies through a set of best practices. The program measures and then certifies communities that integrate transparency, predictability and efficiency into their daily development practices. The RRC certification is a formal recognition that your community has a vision for the future—and the fundamental practices in place to get there.

Valuable information regarding the RRC program is available at https://www.miplace.org/communities/rrc/. Communities that are interested in the RRC program are encouraged to contact their local MEDC Community Assistance Team member.
