Next Michigan – Appointments to Next Michigan Board.
On August 22, 2012, the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) Board of Directors approved the
designation of the West Michigan Economic Partnership (WMEP) as a Next Michigan
Development Corporation. Each of the seven units of government who are part of the
designation (including the City of Muskegon and Muskegon County) must appoint a board
member and an alternate board member. The WMEP board member will attend the meeting and
vote on matters that come before the Board. However, all meetings are open to the public and
any item affecting the City of Muskegon will first be brought to the City Commission for
approval (i.e., budget items that affect the City, incentives provided to developers/businesses, the
areas designated for incentives, etc.).

Staff recommends appointing Cathy Brubaker-Clarke, Director of Community & Economic
Development as the City of Muskegon WMEP Board Member and Mike Franzak, Zoning
Administrator as the City of Muskegon WMEP Board Member alternate member.

This item has been placed on the September 11, 2012 Commission Meeting for consideration.
