Past Meeting Opportunities
Environmental Sustainability Forum
A special forum focused on environmental sustainability was held on Thursday, February 23rd, 2017, at the Cleveland Township Hall. The centerpiece of the forum was a facilitated discussion with community leaders about the recommendations for environmental sustainability in the township’s Draft 2017 Master Plan. Through multiple public meetings held last summer and fall, and through a community survey with hundreds of responses, the township planning commission identified several opportunities for the township to encourage more sustainable practices for inland lakes, watershed health, and other topics. The purpose of the forum was to share these preliminary recommendations with the public and township leaders and seek feedback.
Public Visioning Meeting
A public visioning meeting was held on August 25th, 2016. Around 35 residents and interested people attended to provide feedback on transportation, housing, economy, environment, and land use in the Township. The results of the meeting will be included in the Draft of the Master Plan!
