MARC Planning Sustainable Places
Mid-America Regional Council (MARC) Planning Sustainable Places (PSP) Grant Program
MARC's regional vision of vibrant, green and connected centers and corridors is central to both the Creating Sustainable Places (CSP) initiative and to Transportation Outlook 2040, the region's long-range transportation plan.
MARC’s Total Transportation Policy Committee (TTPC) and the CSP Coordinating Committee joined forces in 2012 to launch the Planning Sustainable Places (PSP) program, a combined initiative to provide communities with pre-development resources to advance sustainable projects in their corridors and centers.

A joint task group, with representation from both of these committees, developed the criteria for eligibility and outline the award process. MARC issued a call for projects that closed on Aug. 29, 2012.
