Gary Packan, assistant city manager, is exploring ways to allow local park departments to save green through regionalization.

Packan asked Sandusky city commissioners to allow him to investigate possible collaboration between neighboring park entities to reduce cost of equipment and overhead expenses. He got the idea after reviewing the success of recent collaborations like the city's work with Erie MetroParks on a water trail and East Bay preserve extension projects.
