The public is invited to attend a meeting of Schoolcraft’s “Reroute” project, part of a process toward a new vision and identity for the village. It is a continuation of last fall’s initial workshop which saw about 70 people participating. The meeting will be held in the Schoolcraft High School cafeteria from 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, April 11.
Two planning meetings have been held since last fall’s workshop: A steering committee and a stakeholders’ session explored ideas to describe the spirit of the village, said Jordan Parker, the Wightman & Associates planner contracted to facilitate the visioning process.
His goal is to build consensus for a plan to be presented at the April meeting. “We will review documents from the first planning phase, depict representative projects that the two smaller groups have discussed and present them to the village residents for consideration,” Parker said.
How residents would like Schoolcraft to grow will be the defining theme, Parker said. He will also be conducting a preference survey with a series of images to be ranked and then used to complete the planning work. This will help form future projects, he pointed out. The workshop is sponsored by the Village of Schoolcraft.
