MSU Krossroads Area Presentation

Michigan State University’s Sustainable Built Environment Initiative (SBEI), led by Professor Wayne Beyea, met on Thursday evening with Kochville community participants to show creative design concepts for a potentially expanded Krossroads Park.  We thank those from the community that helped further this project along!

Here is the presentation from the June 9 design workshop.  (This is a 20mb file.)  A third and final SBEI workshop will take place either later in the summer or early in the fall to present final ideas and recommendations to the township.  Please note that the images in this presentation are not recommendations, but rather ideas to elicit feedback to inform this project.

If you were not able to attend the June 9 workshop but have thoughts on what you’d like to see in the future at Krossroads Park, please email us and let us know!
