Grand Traverse Region - Grand Vision Growth Plan

About the Project

What is the Grand Vision?

Our region has experienced an explosive 26% growth in the last decade, and it is anticipated that we will double today's population within 40 years - making this the fastest growing region in the entire Midwest. Growth Happens. Growth is coming, ready or not. The Grand Vision is a planning effort designed to develop a citizen-led blueprint for growth that will secure the future prosperity and quality of life in the region for generations to come. Citizens of Antrim, Benzie, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Grand Traverse and Wexford counties will have the opportunity to share their vision and their values, and through a "Grand Vision Scorecard", create a common Vision for the future. This "Grand Vision Decision" will serve as a blueprint for the community leaders and government officials charged with its implementation, and will drive the direction of growth for the region for decades to come.

Why is it different than other studies?

Because the Grand Vision is: highly collaborative, regional, well funded, and a citizen-led initiative focused on implementation. Because of the unique and dynamic partnerships along with the full engagement of the community, this "Grand Vision" will not sit on a shelf.
