Open to the public – all welcome



You’re invited to join us on NEXT SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 28th at Shady Creek Winery, for our 2nd stakeholder meeting to discuss opportunities for natural resource access, conservation, and economic development within the Tryon Road corridor.

Our stakeholder kickoff meeting in December 2014 was successful, highlighting numerous opportunities for linkages to existing or future preservation lands.  Let’s keep the discussion going!

Join us on the 28th as we meet with Michigan City Council President Chris Schwanke, Michigan City Assistant Planner Skyler York, along with representatives of the Center for Neighborhood Technology, Alliance for the Great Lakes, and others who will all be there to share their unique knowledge of the area and help shape a collaborative vision for the future development of the area.  Thanks to our host Tim Anderson of Shady Creek.

Tryon Farm is at the geographical center of a rare, largely undeveloped portion of the City of Michigan City.  Future development pressures include a mix of industrial, commercial, new or expanded residential subdivisions and the questions surrounding recently vacated Niemann School and park spaces on both sides of Highway 212.  Numerous acreage properties are for sale in the area.

If you are interested in participating in this workshop meeting, or in joining an ‘ad-hoc’ committee regarding these issues, please email us to discuss or RSVP.
