Greenbelt Advisory Commission Announces Launch of Strategic Review Process
As the Ann Arbor Greenbelt celebrates 15 years, and the halfway mark of the 30-year Open Space and Parkland Preservation Program millage, the Greenbelt Advisory Commission (GAC) has announced it will undertake a review of its strategic plan. Originally drafted in 2006, and reviewed in 2013, the strategic plan guides the commission’s overall priorities. Central to the strategic plan is a commitment to building vibrant blocks of farmland within priority areas, preserving land along the Huron River, and leveraging funds from partner organizations.
To encourage public participation in the review process, the GAC will be holding three public meetings. These meetings will allow stakeholders and the public to meet and review the strategic plan.
Monday, July 29, 5:30–7:30 p.m. — Ann Arbor District Library, Westgate Branch, 2503 Jackson Ave., Ann Arbor.
Thursday, Aug. 15, 5:30–7:30 p.m. — Ann Arbor District Library, Traverwood Branch, 3333 Traverwood Drive, Ann Arbor.
Thursday, Sept. 5, 4:30–7 p.m. — Larcom City Hall, second floor City Council chambers, 301 E. Huron St., Ann Arbor.
For those unable to attend a public meeting, the current Greenbelt strategic plan can be found on the program’s website. Comments or suggestions can be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org the final meeting on Sept. 5.
