In December 2016 Marshall became one of currently 16 Michigan communities to receive certification as a Redevelopment Ready Community (RRC) from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation. RRC certification indicates Marshall is “thoroughly prepared” to attract private investment and has established a solid foundation to succeed–a formal recognition that we have a vision for the future, and the practices in place to get there.
Marshall has put in place planning and zoning policies and procedures, along with other key features, that remove traditional barriers and promote opportunities for prospective private investors. Certification as a Redevelopment Ready Community demonstrates a community follows economic development best practices. The program also evaluates and certifies communities that integrate transparency, predictability, and efficiency into their economic development practices.
