LANSING, Mich. (AP) - A state commission responsible for identifying ways to update Michigan’s infrastructure has created a website to receive public input.

The 21st Century Infrastructure Commission’s website is www.miinfrastructurecommission.com . It allows residents to participate in online discussions and polls, and provides other information about the panel’s work.

In the wake of Flint’s water crisis, Gov. Rick Snyder created the 27-member commission in March to recommend best practices to modernize transportation, water and sewer, energy and communications infrastructure across the state.

It will have three “listening tour” stops in Grand Rapids, Detroit and Marquette.

The first is July 21 at Grand Valley State University. Details on the other two events will be announced soon.

The commission is due to provide an assessment and recommendations by Nov. 30.
