Planning for Resilience in Michigan Handbook

According to the Rockefeller Foundation, community resilience is defined as “the capacity of (communities) to function, so that the people living and working in (communities) – particularly the poor and vulnerable – survive and thrive no matter what stresses or shocks they encounter.” Land use planners and policy makers throughout Michigan are committed to thinking long-term about how change, trends and unanticipated shocks will impact their community. This Handbook is intended to be used as a reference tool by a diverse array of land use policy and planning practitioners in local efforts to bring about greater resilience in their community.
