I research why alternative governance arrangements are chosen and how policies translate differently through these structures. My dissertation focuses on regionalism expressed as inter-local land use agreements in Michigan. What are the mechanisms driving attitudes of local elected officials and planners toward such arrangements? How do such arrangements transform land use practice and outcomes, if at all?
