Grand River, Farmington Visioning Meeting Dates Set

Residents have two opportunities to help set the course of their community's future.

Farmington and Farmington Hills residents have two opportunities this month to influence the future of their communities. 

On March 13, the Corridor Improvement Authorities (CIA) of Farmington Hills and Farmington will host a 5 p.m. Grand River Corridor Visioning Open House. And City of Farmington residents are invited to attend a March 27 follow-up to the Feb. 18 kick-off meeting for that city's visioning process. 

The CIA open house, held at Botsford Hospital Ziegler Administration and Education Building, will highlight draft findings and recommendations of a Grand River corridor study, including the vision statement and design principles for the corridor. The information was gathered from nearly 300 ideas generated through stakeholder meetings, an on-line survey, and the recent Visioning Summit.

The time and location for the March 27 Farmington meeting have not been determined. City manager Vince Pastue said Monday he expects a smaller crowd than the more than 70 people who turned out on Feb. 18. Anyone is welcome to attend the follow-up.  

Residents can also track the visioning process through a link on the City of Farmington website as well as a project page on Facebook. Anyone who wishes to share ideas privately can email aaron.domini@ohm-advisors.com or charlie@projectinnovations.com

Glad to see bike lanes and crosswalks are on the list for prospective improvements. Crossing grand river on foot can be very unsafe and crosswalks seem to be few and far between.
