Dexter Public Input Session 6-11-24


Jun 11 2024


8:00 AM - 6:00 PM

Over the past year the city has done the following with respect to 3045 Broad:
1. Entered into a predevelopment agreement for 172-192 apartments on the property.
2. Endorsed two requests for state funding, one for the developer, another for the Belle bridge connector to the B2B trail. These were mutually exclusive. Could not have them both.
3. Spent money on a financing study for the developer knowing that without the state funding the project was doomed.
4. Agreed to obtain citizen input before proceeding with anything further with 3045.

The public input session is scheduled for June 11, 6PM at the library. However, the city has already determined “3045 is not going to be a park”.

I hope at the session we can get from the city answers to the following:
1. Who works for whom? Doesn’t the city implement the requests of its citizens.
2. The DDA SWOT (strengths, weakness, opportunities and threats) analysis stated that the city’s greatest strength was the border-to-border trail (which brought 400,000 visitors to Dexter), and greatest weakness parking. Why would the city endorse a plan that weakens its strength, and enhances its weakness?
3. Shouldn’t the city being thinking 50 years ahead and trying to envision what would be better in the long term, a building or a park? Parks are the economic engine of Dexter.

I urge you to attend the meeting on the 11th , and advocate for parks and trails.
