This community session is geared toward Black, Indigenous and other people of color, though all are welcome.
Join Metro in January to learn about our work to develop plans to protect special places across the region through land acquisition and restoration. Over the last year, we have been learning as much as we can about each of the 24 target areas outlined in the bond measure and working with Indigenous community members to find the best ways to apply the bond criteria and community input to shape the plans for protecting land. Many community members and representatives from culturally specific organizations participated in engagement opportunities, allowing us to glean additional information and insights that have helped shape our work.
We want to share the work done to date, and hear what we got right or what we might have missed before we bring these plans to the Metro Council for consideration in spring 2022. Once approved by the Metro Council, these plans will provide the road map for acquiring and restoring land through our willing seller program.
