If you are a landowner thinking about applying to the Greenbelt, or if you are an interested Ann Arbor resident looking to find out more about the Greenbelt program, we hope you will find this information helpful.
The Greenbelt program is an innovative land preservation program that has protected over 5,060 acres of farmland and open space surrounding the city of Ann Arbor, and has leveraged over $24 million through grants, landowner donations and other locally funded programs.
Greenbelt Strategic Plan Review Input Opportunities
The Greenbelt Advisory Commission (GAC) is leading the 2019 review of the program's strategic plan (PDF) with opportunities for the community to provide input. Originally drafted in 2006, and reviewed in 2013, the strategic plan guides the GAC’s overall priorities. The strategic plan emphasizes a commitment to building vibrant blocks of farmland within priority areas, preserving land along the Huron River and leveraging funds from partner organizations.
The following public meetings will allow stakeholders and the community to meet and review the strategic plan.
