This first in a series of four monthly discussions co-sponsored by the City of Ann Arbor centers on Resource Management and will include discussion on natural areas, waste reduction, recycling, compost, local food systems, water and air quality. Panelists include: Jason Tallant from Natural Area Preservation; Chris Graham, Chair of the Environmental Commission; Kerry Gray, Urban Forestry & Natural Resources Planner; Tom McMurtrie, Solid Waste Coordinator and Matthew Naud, Environmental Coordinator. Joining the City of Ann Arbor staff will be Richard Norton, Chair of UM's Urban and Regional Planning program and Laura Rubin, Executive Director of the Huron River Watershed Council.
Each of the four monthly sessions will examine past successes and challenges, discuss possible future priorities and feature a think tank of local stakeholders (UM faculty, representatives from community organizations, city commissioners, City of Ann Arbor staff and the public). The ensuing discussions will help guide the city's sustainability planning efforts.
