Smart Programming: Automotive Renewal and the Michigan Permitting ProcessDownload Now
The Center for Automotive Research (CAR) has, at the request of the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), undertaken a study for the Michigan Automotive Partnership (MAP) of the time needed for the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ) to issue a major modification air quality permit and how it may affect future automotive investment in Michigan. This study focuses on the environmental permitting process as it applies to the new construction, or major expansion of large automotive assembly facilities in the State of Michigan. More specifically, the study examines the issues affecting the length of time involved for an automobile company to secure all necessary air quality permits prior to construction. The study’s recommendations aim at improving the relationship between manufacturers, the State of Michigan, and other stakeholders, thus, protecting the substantial automotive investment in Michigan, and making it attractive for future investment.
