Fort Custer Strives Towards Resilience

On March 23 and 24, LIAA will be hosting a charrette for community members from jurisdictions surrounding Fort Custer Training Center, a Michigan Army National Guard facility. The charrette is part of a larger visioning project for three of Michigan’s National Guard facilities – Fort Custer, Selfridge Air National Guard Base, and Camp Grayling. The goal of the project is to make these facilities more resilient to potential shocks now and far into the future. The state of Michigan has been selected to participate in this exciting demonstration project focused on integrating resilience planning into Department of Defense operations and installations. This spring, LIAA will be leading similar charrettes at Camp Grayling and Selfridge Air National Guard Base.

The two-day charrette in Grayling will begin with an evening of general presentations on climate change by state experts on topics such as local climate, the economy, energy, and infrastructure. After the presentations participants will discuss resilience as it relates to Fort Custer and the surrounding communities. After the charrette, the LIAA team will incorporate the community feedback into plan formation, as well as facilitate meetings in the future to further refine the voice of the public.
