Next Michigan Zone Approved For Central U.P.

State Representative John Kivela and State Senator Tom Casperson say they are pleased with the Michigan Strategic Fund Board decision to give final approval to the Superior Trade Zone Next Michigan Development Corporation.

The creation of the Next Michigan Zone was approved when Governor Rick Snyder signed into law in 2013 bills introduced by Kivela in the House and Casperson in the Senate.

Those bills created a sixth zone in the Next Michigan Development Act including the central Upper Peninsula.

The act, part of the “Aerotropolis” legislation of 2010, provided for the creation of up to five Next Michigan Development Corps., entities that encourage economic development and investment, job creation and retention, and ancillary economic growth.
