MSU Urban and Regional Planning Practicum course students will be working under the guidance of Dr. Zenia Kotval to assist the Wayne County Land Bank this spring semester. Students will create strategies to return vacant and abandoned property to productive use. Additionally, they will help assess how many vacant properties are returned to productive use and how this fits with the Land Bank's mission for strategic planning recommendation.

Projects such as the REI Student-Led/Faculty-Guided opportunity assist students to work on real-time community issues with community partners, under University expertise, helping bridge their future transition to professional practice. We look forward to keeping up to date on their progress! For more information, please see here.
