Municipalities in Michigan and across the country are faced with a growing portfolio of municipal infrastructure, such as courthouses, schools, hospitals, parking garages and streetlights, that need to be built or renovated. Last year, for example, it was estimated that Michigan had $8.9 billion in unmet school construction needs. Unfortunately, most municipalities have competing priorities and cannot always address these needs.
Enter public-private partnerships.
Michigan has a unique legislative and regulatory framework that has been used for some P3s but has not been widely used for buildings or other municipal needs. P3s are a valuable tool for communities and states to obtain necessary infrastructure improvements, while maintaining public ownership of the building or structure.
