|*** Action Needed by Dexter Township Residents ***|
The Washtenaw County Board of Commissioners will be soon be discussing how to utilize their ARP funds (American Rescue Plan) and allocate funds for broadband, in the goal of making Washtenaw County the first county with 100% broadband coverage. Washtnaw Cty will be receiving approximately $71M and the BBTF (Broadband Task Force) has recommended a need of approximately $14M of those funds be utilized for county-wide broadband build out. We know we have approximately 300 locations that are underserved or unserved within our own township.
We need you, Dexter Township residents, to share your stories, frustrations, and experiences concerning the lack of broadband service within our community. Sharing your stories and experiences on how the lack of broadband affects your life and families life is imperative to draw attention and ask the BOC to support the county wide broadband build out and allocate the needed funding.
Please take action and share your experiences via an email to:
Our Washtenaw County Commissioner: Jason Maciejewski at firstname.lastname@example.org and to the Broadband Task Force - Lisa Mountinh at email@example.com - Make your voices heard.
Also, July 7th the Board of Commissioners will be having their meeting, we encourage residents to attend and make comments during the public comment portion of the BOC meeting.

|Open Space and Land Preservation Committee Notice 2021|
NOTICE OF INVITATION TO APPLY FOR THE DEXTER TOWNSHIP OPEN SPACE AND LAND PRESERVATION COMMITTEE:
In Dexter Township there are competing needs to welcome and manage residential growth and development while at the same-time preserving open-spaces, farmland, and agricultural activities. It is critical that we as a township learn about and explore various avenues for preserving open land and natural spaces, including options for farmers in land conservation, use and sale, beyond residential development. This is the aim of the Open Space and Land Preservation Committee to: 1) explore available resources, strategies, and initiatives available to the township to preserve farmland and open space, 2) to engage and educate the community through the process of this exploration, and 3) to reach out to farmers to provide information and options for land use and sale, including purchase of development rights opportunities in accordance with the priorities set forth in Township Ordinance No. 37: Purchase of Development Rights (Ordinance 37). This is a temporary, exploratory committee that after a term of one year, will give-way to the creation of an Open Space and Land Preservation Board.
If you are a resident of Dexter Township who is interested in serving on the Open Space and Land Preservation (OSLP) committee please create a letter of interest and send to both Clerk, Michelle Stamboulellis at firstname.lastname@example.org and Trustee, Laura Sanders at email@example.com, describing why you are interested and what you might bring to the table. The Committee shall be comprised of seven members of the public including at least one member of the Dexter Township Board. We are especially seeking farmland owners and at least one public member who has some expertise in land conservation and preservation initiatives. All applications will be reviewed, and members will be appointed by the Township Board.
