Watershed Protection Overlay District Informational Meeting is Dec. 12

Education, News No Response

 An open meeting of the Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed Protection Project Task Force has been set and the public is welcome and encouraged to attend.

GLA is sponsoring the meeting, bringing together the four townships within the watershed–Cleveland, Glen Arbor, Kasson and Empire–to learn about and discuss the opportunity to strengthen the protection of surface and groundwater within the boundaries of the Glen Lake/ Crystal River Watershed. 

The prime focus of the meeting will be to digest how a zoning “Overlay District” plan, with a menu of several protective provisions might play out in a uniform way in all four of the townships that are inside our watershed.

The main speaker will be Tony Groves, consultant, from Progressive AE, who has helped us pioneer this proposed project. 

You won’t want to miss this important event, please email the GLA and tell us if you can participate.

 

 

The agenda for the meeting will be as follows:

  1. Welcome and Introductions – Denny Becker, Former President of GLA
  2. Presentation by Tony Groves, Consultant, Progressive AE
  3. Presentation by Roberta Dow, retired MSU educator
  4. Open Discussion – Facilitated by Rob Karner, Watershed Biologist
  5. Closing Remarks – Denny Becker

We hope to see you there!!

Thursday, Dec 12,  7:30 – 9 pm

Empire Township Hall, 1088 W Front St
