Gov. Granholm has handed out awards to several communities for their urban revitalization projects. Ann Arbor Township was one of them:

The awards ceremony, which was sponsored by the State of Michigan, also heralded restoration work in Detroit, Escanaba, Kalamazoo, and Ann Arbor Township. In a statement by the governor released in tandem with the award ceremony, which she did not attend, Ms. Granholm noted that increased historic preservation activity across the state has made it harder to choose the award winners. “I am passionate about these awards because I believe preserving Michigan’s historic resources is critical to creating vibrant, attractive spaces in which we all want to live and work,” Ms. Granholm said.
