September 23, 2022 The Abilities Alliance announces the release of their report regarding the Disability Needs in Livingston County.

The Abilities Alliance is a workgroup of the Livingston Human Services Collaborative Body, a coalition of disability service organizations that strive to provide the most effective services for ALL ABILITIES in our community. The Abilities Alliance sends out a survey every other year to understand needs, identify service gaps and gather information from Livingston County community members who identify as having a disability.  The survey was open to any Livingston County community member with a disability. Support persons, caregivers, parents, or providers were encouraged to help the individual(s) complete the survey.

Livingston County residents with disabilities were surveyed in early 2022 in order to gather data for this need’s assessment.  “Difficulty finding in home and personal care assistants, not having adequate supports and resources to live independently and a lack of social and recreational activities were among the most reported unmet needs,” said Katie Oswald of Full Spectrum Agency for Autistic Adults and Chair of the workgroup. Information regarding utilization of local services and supports, barriers and additional unmet needs was also gathered.

The Abilities Alliance workgroup continues to raise awareness about inclusion and accessibility for people of all abilities in Livingston County. The needs survey is an important part of understanding what services people need most in our community. We will continue to learn from our community members and encourage others to take steps toward greater inclusion.

February 10, 2022 Livingston County Planning Department releases High-Quality Natural Areas Assessment

The 2022 Livingston County High-Quality Natural Areas Assessment provides an extensive update to the County Planning Department’s initial 2004 assessment. Computing technology, data availability, and mapping products and processes have improved tremendously since 2004, which has allowed the County to do much more in depth analysis then was previously available.

This report documents the natural feature characteristics of the County, identifies the County’s High-Quality Natural Areas, compares and contrasts this data with the 2004 assessment, and much more. As a result of this assessment, a new GIS mapping application for high-quality natural areas will be developed and added to the Livingston County GIS Map Gallery for Livingston County municipalities to utilize when reviewing zoning amendments.

This beneficial new Potential Conservation Areas Assessment can be found on the Livingston County Planning Department website at: https://www.livgov.com/plan/Pages/County-Plans.aspx
