SOUTHFIELD, Mich., July 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Restructuring, Collaboration, Consolidation, Shared Services are all statements that are generating a strong momentum when it comes time for cities, counties and municipalities across Michigan and the country to do more with less. Band-aid solutions are no longer working, so what's next?

On Tuesday, July 27, 2010 at 9:00 a.m., The Engineering Society of Detroit Institute (ESDI) along with Lansing-based Prima Civitas Foundation and Michigan State University Extension Center, will unveil their findings for a sustainable new economy initiative that will help governments across the country serve their citizens better while making up for loss in revenue sharing, decreased property values and budget deficits.

Based on a recent symposium conducted to "Re-envision the Future" of the City of Davison and its Township in Michigan, this press conference will detail viable solutions for municipalities to survive and grow in these turbulent economic times.

"A secondary important goal of our Davison symposium was to serve as a 'Lighthouse' for other communities in Michigan and in the country who wish to explore a re-envisioning of their future," said Christopher J. Webb, Co-Director of the ESD Institute.
