PLEASE ATTEND: Residents Invited to Planning Meeting Thursday at DoubleTree
Local residents are asked to give input Thursday on a grant-funded planning process aimed at upgrading community assets.
Bay City has been selected by the Michigan Association of Planning (MAP) from more than a dozen communities to receive a service grant to participate in an innovative project.
Above PAR - Planning for Place, Access, and Redevelopment, that seeks to integrate placemaking, transportation, and redevelopment readiness principles into the community's master plan and land use regulations.
Funded by the C.S. Mott Foundation and the Michigan State Housing Development Authority (MSHDA), Bay City will work with MAP over the next year to study the community's assets, and make system-wide recommendations that will add value to ongoing planning and development efforts.
Interested residents are invited to attend a meeting Thursday, July 12 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the DoubleTree (http://doubletree3.hilton.com/en/hotels/michigan/doubletree-by-hilton-hotel-bay-city-riverfront-MBSBCDT/maps-directions/index.html).
Attend and learn about the project, share some dessert, and tell us what is working for Bay City. We are eager to hear your ideas and thoughts. Bring a friend, neighbor, your kids, and anyone who is interested in Bay City's future. There is no cost to attend, but we do ask you to register your attendance and any guests so we know how much space and dessert to prepare.
To register, contact Sherrie Howard, MAP's Director of Operations, via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at (734) 913-2000 and tell her your name, phone number, email, and organization (if applicable). Walk-ins are also welcome.
For more information about the project, visit the project website (www.baycityabovepar.org) or feel free to contact Ms. Howard.
