The Huron River Watershed Council and Dexter Township invite township residents to help create a Green Infrastructure Vision at a special meeting on Feb. 7.
Green infrastructure is the interconnected network of open spaces, natural areas and waterways that supports native species, maintains natural ecological processes, sustains air and water resources, and contributes to residents' health and quality of life.
Attendees will study maps of Dexter Township natural areas, water resources, recreational areas, and the master plan, and participate in a hands-on assessment of the township’s green infrastructure and potential future plans for its protection and enhancement. This visioning process will inform development of a Green Infrastructure Plan for the township.
A second session this summer will present the draft plan for final approval. The plan is the final map of the township's natural assets along with a blueprint for steps the township can take to guide current and future land use activities that will maintain the township’s green infrastructure.
The meeting will take place from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Dexter Township Hall. Space is limited. To register, email or call Kris Olsson at firstname.lastname@example.org, 734-769-5123, Ext. 607.
