all: I can speak to the long term greenways plan question

01:24:15
Hi,
Larry Koziel
01:24:30
How will the removed material (debris, trees, contaminated soil, etc) be disposed?
Jason Lindy
01:29:54
These are less questions and more points of feedback. Tldr my friends I am not that excited to see how much is being uprooted and paved without referencing the history of that existing landscape it's a missed opportunity and something that otherwise for so much of this greenway that is so rich in those elements that make this loop a potential nation-wide draw.Long form:- Have accessibility for natural wild greenspace with simple interventions like tables and benches.- in future presentations have 'before' photos of the site even aerial or satellite view. Design should reference the best elements of the existing environment as often as possible- Offer areas for a community garden for people local to the area to grow on the greenway like they do on the greenway in madison wi- but y'all this is way too much paved out of the existing landscape. These can be goosenecked a lot especially where people are moving slower to be porous with a natural landscape that can be walked through with either gravel woo

What measures will you take to control the unwanted rodents around the taller ground coverings?
Larry Koziel
01:34:59
Be mindful that dead leaves in the fall, especially wet dead leaves, are almost as slippery as ice for cyclists.
Tim Springer
01:35:29
Might there be any of the following: (1) edible landscapes such as berries or fruit trees; (2) solar panels on the lights as their power source; (3) allowing adjacent businesses to open up onto the corridor, such as bar/restaurant patio seating?
Larry Koziel
01:44:46
The slippery leaves comment in related to the choice of trees. It also raises the question about maintenance such as clearing snow and ice in the winter and removing leaves from the pathways in the fall.

what about l people

Hiring security companies should be a major consideration.
Tim Springer
01:53:28
Will any of the functional items such as lighting, benches, garbage and recycling bins, retaining walls, or fencing, be designed as art rather than utilitarian features?

Rats: Detroit has escalated to the 6th rattiest city in the national. That’s up from 8 just 3 years ago. Connect with Ferndale Councilwoman Laura Mikulski.
Reshounn “Sun” Foster Resident
01:55:55
Laura is founder of the Ferndale Rat Patrol, which I’m also a part of, and has presented to several town halls and came to the North End to advise. Detroit’s rodent control methods are sorely outdated. Opossums, owls, and hawks are great.
Christina Peltier

Please encourage your neighbors and friends to complete the survey at www.joelouisgreenway.com by November 5th. We want to hear about neighborhood leaders and history.
