Our Work

“Our project required economic development, regional planning, branding, communication, and web design experience. CIB Planning brought all of these.
CIB was instrumental in creating the sustainable framework and implementation schedule for Michigan’s I-69 Thumb Region, a seven-county economic development partnership that was a direct result of the Accelerate Regional Prosperity and Comprehensive Economic Development Plan.

 “With the help of the Economic Development Strategy developed with the assistance of MEDC and CIB Planning we have been able to hit the ground running, start implementing the strategies, goals and objectives, and help our businesses weather the COVID pandemic.”
-Lynne Ladner, City Manager for the City of Hart, MI
