Resilient Ludington seeking online input

August 26, 2014

LUDINGTON — Resilient Ludington community planing project has created an online survey to gather community opinions and verify themes and priorities identified during the ongoing public input process. Survey results will be used to inform the community planning committee about important area-wide issues and concerns. The survey contains questions on a diverse array of community topics and issues, such as key cultural and leisure attractions in the Ludington area; natural, cultural, and historical assets of the region; transportation issues; priorities for government funding; and questions about the local economy. Whether a visitor or year-round resident, everyone from the Ludington Community is encouraged to participate and share their thoughts.

A link to the online Resilient Ludington Community Planning Survey is available on the project website at The survey takes about 15 minutes to complete, answers will remain anonymous. The survey results will be compiled by the Land Information Access Association (LIAA), which is also managing the project.

The second in a series of Community Action Team meetings – designed to get more specific, in-depth community input into several key areas of interest – will take place at 6 p.m. on Wednesday, August 27, at Pere Marquette Charter Township Hall. Descriptions, times and locations for all the scheduled public gatherings are available on the project website at
