The City of Wayne is currently seeking to obtain certification through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation's (MEDC) Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC) program
The RRC program is a voluntary, no-cost certification program designed to promote effective redevelopment strategies through a set of best practices. The program measures and then certifies communities that integrate transparency, predictability and efficiency into their daily development practices. The RRC certification is a formal recognition that a community has a vision for the future and the fundamental practices in place to get there.
The RRC Program allows communities to streamline internal processes and certification opens the door for a stronger working relationship with the State of Michigan with increased access to funding and collaborative opportunities to market Westland's exciting redevelopment opportunities.
