Cool Cities Initiative began as an initiative started by Michigan Governor Jennifer Granholm to spur growth and investment in Northern Cities.[1][2] The Initiative was proposed in 2003 in response to students attending college in Michigan and then seeking employment out of state.[3] The Stadium District, immediately south of Oldsmobile Park in Lansing, was redeveloped using a grant from the Cool Cities project.[4][5]
