In 2016, Meridian Twp. commissioned Campbell Planning and McKenna to develop Concept Plans for three sub-area within their jurisdiction as the main thrust of their 5-year Comprehensive Plan update. Sites included Haslett, Carriage Hill, and a connection between Okemos and a new Grand River Ave. BRT station, where a church parking lot barrier was transformed into a parking green.
At the annual Michigan Associaion of Planning (MAP) Conference on Mackinac Island, this project received a 2017 planning award. Campbell Planning (along with McKenna and Russell Design) had been engaged in January 2016 by Delhi Twp. to re-design and code the streetscape from N. of East Willoughby Rd. to S. of Holt Rd.
In March 2017, Campbell Planning was challenged by John Jackson at McKenna to create a Concept Sketch for the deployment of shipping containers as housing along Wyoming Ave. in Royal Oak Twp., MI to promote (on behalf of the township) a global design competition to generate additional alternatives.
