The Land Policy Institute (LPI) is committed to helping play a vital role in ushering in the New Economy by helping guide the creation of sustainable places. That starts by helping people understand the critical role land use plays in economic prosperity, environmental integrity, and social equity-the three pillars of sustainability. Our focus is policy-the many decision makers whose choices shape the future.
We are dedicated to helping deliver a better quality of life through science-based solutions, helping strengthen Michigan's economy, and helping protect our environment in ways that are fair for all.
The good news is that Michigan has unparalleled strategic assets. Our Great Lakes location, natural resources, land-based industries, clean environment, and premier research universities give us an edge as we reshape our economy to compete worldwide.
