From the Detroit Food Policy Council:
There have been several news stories in recent weeks about the possible sale of significant amounts of city owned land. Land use decisions being made now will broadly impact every resident in our city for decades to come.
In an effort to inform and engage residents on this issue, the Detroit Food Policy Council (DFPC) is hosting a public listening session to inform the public about the city’s current process for selling land and to provide an opportunity for the community to share their experiences, ideas and questions about the sale of public land with city officials and the DFPC. We invite you and your members to attend this session and share your opinion with local officials, the DFPC and fellow community members.
Public Listening Session
Wednesday, August 22, 5:30 – 8:30 p.m.
Gleaners Community Food Bank
2131 Beaufait St., Detroit, MI 48207
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with a light meal and opportunity to hear and share personal experiences with purchasing land from the city. The agenda includes presentations by city officials and residents of the issues followed by a public comment period.
