2012 SUSTAINABLE ANN ARBOR FORUM: COMMUNITY
ANN ARBOR, Mich., Apr.5, 2012—The City of Ann Arbor is collaborating with the Ann Arbor District Library to host a “Sustainable Ann Arbor” discussion series. This series brings together University of Michigan faculty, representatives from community organizations, city commissioners, city staff, and the public to discuss local sustainability concepts and efforts—past, present and future. The series is organized around four theme areas. The final event of this four part series will be held Thursday, April 12th at 7 p.m. in the Ann Arbor District Main Library at 343 South Fifth Ave.
The forum will focus on community, including presentations on parks and recreation, public safety, housing, and community development. Speakers for the event are posted online at: http://www.a2gov.org/sustainability/Pages/SustainableAnnArborForum.aspx.
Each forum includes short presentations followed by a question and answer session. The ensuing discussions will help guide the city’s sustainability planning efforts. The Sustainable Ann Arbor Forums are part of the City of Ann Arbor’s sustainability framework project. Ann Arbor’s current sustainability framework efforts are funded by the Home Depot Foundation. More information on the sustainability framework and the Sustainable Ann Arbor Forums is available at www.a2gov.org/sustainability and on the State of Our Environment Report webpage at www.a2gov.org/soe.
