What are issues and concerns that you think will require attention and action in the next five years? Is there a local or regional issue that you believe hasn’t yet been addressed? Has your community dealt with water safety or ecological concerns that may apply more broadly to the southern Lake Michigan region? 

Illinois-Indiana Sea Grant is in the process of drafting our next strategic plan, and we would love to have input from you. Anyone who cares about the health and safety of the Great Lakes, and specifically Lake Michigan, is welcome to review the document and provide their thoughts. 

Input from community members and residents who value and benefit from the Great Lakes is critical in planning how we structure our programs and research. If you would like to review the plan and add your comments, you can view it here (opens as Word document).

Contact Lisa Merrifield by to October 26 to provide any feedback on the strategic plan.
