Speak up!

We know you have a lot of ideas and opinions. Here’s one chance to use them to make a difference.

The DNR and Belle Isle Conservancy is hosting two upcoming meetings seeking input from the public on the strategic direction and management of the island park. This will be part of a long-term vision and plan for the 982-acre park. Updates on the management plan can be found here.

The meetings will be Wednesday, March 29, from 2 to 4 p.m. or 6 to 8 p.m. at the Flynn Pavilion, near the intersection of Picnic Way and Loiter Way.

According to the release, “The public input meetings will begin with a short presentation on the planning process, projects completed to date and those in progress. It will be followed by individual and group exercises to gather input to inform the plan.”

If you can’t make the meetings, don’t worry. There’s an online questionnaire to fill out that covers participants’ priorities and what they’d like to see happen at the park.

We hope you speak your mind at either a meeting or in the questionnaire. While we have our thoughts, we’d love to hear yours, as always, in the comments.
