Resilient Monroe Cooperative Planning Project


Supervisor Barron

Monroe Township Supervisor Barron

The City of Monroe, Frenchtown Charter Township and Monroe Charter Township are working together to strengthen the community’s ability to manage changes and challenges of all kinds – and to thrive. Planning for a strong and diverse local economy, responsive and interconnected human services, and carefully managed natural resources will make the Monroe Community a more resilient and desirable place to live.

City and township officials and staff members joined the planning professionals from LIAA and technical experts from MSU and UM to explain the project goals and opportunities at three public meetings during April and May, 2013. The meetings included presentations on planning for community resilience and opportunities for public participation. The meeting times and locations were:

Thursday, April 25, 2013 at Monroe County Community College

Tuesday, April 30, 2013 at Frenchtown Charter Township Hall

Wednesday, May 1, 2013 at the Arthur Lesow Community Center

Similar presentations were given at each of these three meetings. One presentation described the project and gave an overview of how city and township planning processes work to guide community development. Click here to view an Acrobat .pdf copy of this presentation.  

The second presentation gave an overview of how Michigan's climate has changed in recent times and summarized what can be predicted about the future.
