     Please continue to encourage your peers, friends, neighbors, and kids to take it at www.plandearborn.org. You could just forward this email, or share the flyer attached. 

2. We are also hosting listening events on April 29 and May 2 at a variety of places in Dearborn: Fordson High School, O.L. Smith Middle School, Salina Elementary School, Centennial Library, and the Arab American National Museum.
    These will be focused on neighborhoods, and help inform future land use in Dearborn. Please see the flyer below with complete details and specific event dates/times. There is a virtual option for folks unable to attend on those dates.
    No need to RSVP, and people can show up anytime during the events !   

3. We extend our thanks to everyone who has participated in the process so far! We’re very grateful for your ideas, time, and passion for Dearborn. It shows in the survey responses and feedback to date.
