The City of Ann Arbor’s ‘Greenbelt’ Program is an exciting land preservation initiative that has successfully protected over 2,000 acres of farmland surrounding the city. In addition to protecting the land from destruction via development, the ‘Greenbelt’ program has raised over $12 million dollars towards maintaining current farms as well as constructing new green projects in the surrounding areas. Through the ‘Greenbelt’ program, private citizens can reach an agreement to preserve the integrity of their land, with the City of Ann Arbor compensating the landowner in exchange for the promise that the landowner will not alter the land except in ways that are agreed upon prior to the deal. For more information contact Project Director Ginny Trocchio at 734-794-6210 or email her at email@example.com or visit www.a2gov.org/greenbelt/Pages/greenbelthome.—GMK
