You're invited to "A Community Forum on Farmland Preservation." This is a
great chance to learn more about how we can preserve farmland and the
rural character of the Ann Arbor area with a Purchase of Development
Rights (PDR) program. The Forum will feature:
* Gordon Hayward's presentation on how Peninsula Township on Grand
Traverse Bay has protected over 4000 acres of open space.
* Ann Arbor Mayor John Hieftje and Ann Arbor Township Supervisor Michael
Moran discussing the land preservation proposals on the November ballot.
* Washtenaw farmers will describe their experiences with PDR.
* An expert panel will discuss your questions and comments about sprawl,
land preservation, PDR, and land use in Washtenaw County.
