SG-W:/ Conservation Subdivision Design Workshops

Last spring Mike Schroer (a former Washtenaw County Planning Commission member) and I attended a workshop in Grand Rapids led hosted by MSU extension and led by Randall Arendt.  The topic was using development designs to preserve open space -- Arendt is a widely recognized expert in the technique.  Mike was so pleased with the workshop that he put a bug in the ear of our local MSUE, and they jumped on it.  There are a few spots left for their series of workshops:
