I hope you are having a good spring! I wanted to share a few announcements regarding public meetings coming up in District 6. These are all great opportunities for residents to participate and share their opinions, questions and concerns!


April 25: City of Detroit Riverside Park Public Meeting


The city is holding a public meeting regarding the proposed Riverside Park land conversion. Because Riverside Park has utilized millions in public funds designated for outdoor public recreation, before a certain parcel is converted to be used for non-outdoor recreation use, the city and the Michigan Department of Natural Resources must review the application for conversion. As part of the process, there is a public meeting that the city is coordinating on Tuesday, April 25, 5:30 p.m. at Patton Recreation Center, 2301 Woodmere St. in Detroit.


April 28: Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority Community Meeting


The Windsor-Detroit Bridge Authority is having its annual public meeting regarding the Gordie Howe Bridge on Friday, April 28 at 11 a.m. at the Michigan Outdoor Adventure Center, 1801 Atwater St. in Detroit. The purpose of the annual public meeting is to share information on WDBA operations and activities, and to solicit feedback from the public. If you plan to attend in person, please confirm by calling (519) 946-3038 (this is an Ontario, Canada phone number) or by registering online: WDBA will accept questions both in advance and at the meeting.


May 1: Detroit City Council Meeting Regarding Storage and Transportation of Pet Coke


On Monday, May 1 at 10 a.m., the Detroit City Council is meeting regarding Councilmember Raquel Castaneda-Lopez’s ordinance to prevent products like pet coke and other carbonaceous materials from being stored uncovered or on the riverfront, keeping large piles of carbonaceous materials, construction materials and asphalt millings from blighting our neighborhoods, and cleaning trucks before entering residential neighborhoods. The City Council meeting is at the Coleman A. Young Municipal Center, 2 Woodward Ave. in Detroit. I encourage you to attend the meeting and share your opinions regarding the ordinance.


Thank you for reading! In the near future, we will provide an update on legislation introduced in the state Legislature and legislative discussions regarding the state budget. Hope to see you soon.
