LIAA’s team traveled to the City of Petoskey to talk to local residents about a range of community resilience topics, part of an ongoing project that will lead into the City’s Livable Petoskey Master Plan update. Speakers included Harry Burkholder, Executive Director of the Land Information Access Association; Derek Shiels, Director of Stewardship for the Little Traverse Conservancy; Roger Racine, an infectious disease epidemiologist with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services; and Rebeca Otto, Director of Events and Community Engagement for Char-Em United Way. The public meeting took place at North Central Community College and was attended by around 40 people who provided input on their community’s current situation and its future, and identified local assets and challenges.
