Leap Day MRGI Community Meeting!


Monday, Feb. 29, 7:00-9:00 PM at the Florence Civic Center

Dear Mill River Lovers,

Once again we’re asking you to contribute ideas on how to advance our goals for a greenway along the Mill River. Margot Halpin and Armi Macaballug, grad students at the Conway School, will be on hand to present the results of our Feb. 2nd meeting and report on how they’ve integrated your comments into their preliminary suggestions for priority projects. They’ll discuss opportunities for a variety of projects from multi-use paths to woodland trails to ecological and research sites to scenic overviews and historic sites.

Agenda For The Meeting:

  1. Review input from last community meeting.
  2. Present recent Conway School work including methods, maps, and analysis.
  3. Review regional map from Arcadia to Goshen to see relationships among opportunity areas, current green spaces, parks, public lands, bike routes, pedestrian routes, and paths. Request comments from the community.
  4. Discuss a selection of focus areas with maps and solicit input from the community.
  5. Discuss next steps.

Once again we stress that your contributions are vital: You know specific information about the river itself, but especially about your preferences concerning what you would or would not like to happen to different sections of the river. Here’s your chance to make a difference in the long run because your voices are needed to carry out our collective vision of a beautiful and vibrant river corridor.

See you at the Florence Civic Center on February 29th. If you can’t make it, please send your ideas to Armi and Margot at millriver2016@csld.edu.

Many thanks for making this all possible,

The MRGI co-conspirators
