Executive Director Update

The Michigan Historic Preservation Tax Credit was an important tool to drive economic revitalization and leverage investment in historic properties throughout Michigan. That credit was eliminated in 2011, but Senator Wayne Schmidt has introduced legislation to reinstate it (SB 469). Link to the bill
 
Please join us for lunch Wednesday, November 8, at noon to kick off the coalition to reinstate the Michigan Historic Preservation Tax Credit. Each of you plays a strategic role in the passage of this  critical legislation--please join us to learn how you can support the effort. Please RSVP to mhpn@kelley-cawthorne.com by Fri 11/3.
 
Wednesday, 11/8/17, 12:00 noon - Michigan Municipal League Offices - Christman Building, 1st Floor -  208 N. Capitol Ave, Lansing  48933
