What is the Thriving Cities Tour?
Michigan’s cities have so many opportunities to offer people, however, our communities are also faced with many needs that have gone unmet for decades. With more and more people making the choice to live in cities, it is important to address these challenges across the state.
In an effort to improve the quality of life in urban centers, Lt. Governor Gilchrist will be hosting the Thriving Cities tour in cities across the state. The tour will bring together grassroots and grass-tops individuals for an open and honest conversation about how the state can better meet the needs of cities in five key areas.
