Michigan's Scenic Resources

Welcome to Scenic Michigan

Scenic Michigan is an affiliate of the national non-profit organization Scenic America. We are headquartered in Petoskey, Michigan, and work to enhance the scenic beauty of Michigan’s communities and roadsides. Our principal activity is informing the public of the economic, social, and cultural benefits of highway beautification.

Scenic Michigan promotes and sponsors programs to encourage natural beauty in the environment, enhance landscapes, protect historical and cultural resources, and improve community appearance.

Endowment Fund!

Scenic Michigan is pleased to announce that we have set up an Endowment Fund through the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation. This is a great way for Scenic Michigan to build for the future as we can build the fund but use the investment income to help fund our programs.

Issues

The issues we are concerned with include sign control (on-premise, billboards, electronic billboards), tree conservation, cell tower control, and place-sensitive highway design.
