Public Act 240 of 2012 required the creation of a strategic plan for public land management. The resulting plan is Michigan's Managed Public Land Strategy, created in collaboration with a broad range of partners. The Strategy provides a framework for the continued conservation, use and management of public lands to provide an enhanced quality of life for residents and visitors and ensure the best use of public land.
This collection of documents shows how public land is acquired, sold and used in Michigan. The documents in these appendices summarize economic activity involving DNR-managed public land, show examples of how public land was sold to support economic activity, and summarize previous land management reports.
