This virtual community center is being created by citizens throughout the county who are participating in a grant project entitled Information Technology for Community and Intergovernmental Cooperation (ITCIC). The ITCIC project is being developed with oversight from a broad Community and Intergovernmental Coordination Committee, comprised of representatives from the community, local units of governments, and key agency and business leaders.
Primary goals of the ITCIC project are to link all local units of government into this information system, to encourage intergovernmental cooperation and information sharing, and to develop tools to promote integrated community planning. A central tenet of this project is to demonstrate that community and intergovernmental cooperation and information sharing results in more informed community and land use planning.
Funding for this project has been provided by the C.S. Mott and the W.K. Kellogg Foundations, the Michigan Council of Local Governments, the Land Information Access Association and participating Units of Government & Organizations in Hillsdale County listed below.
