Saginaw Metropolitics: A Regional Agenda for Community and Stability
University of Minnesota Law School; Institute on Race and Poverty; Ameregis
This research identifies the suburban typology of the Saginaw area through a study of the social and fiscal disparities within the region. Municipal tax base and other demographic data, such as poverty rates measured at the school-level, are used to show wide variations in the capacities of suburban municipalities to provide local public services. The results show clear signs of current fiscal and social stress in the region. A range of regional fiscal, planning, and governance reforms are also evaluated.
