The Allen Creek Greenway Conservancy is a nonprofit advocacy group for Allen Creek, founded by builder Joe O’Neal.
The web site features a helicopter tour of the greenway, which is proposed to run alongside the Ann Arbor Railroad from Michigan Stadium to Argo Pond.
In May 2014, the conservancy held a community design charrette to get input for a master planning process that's expected to begin in September.
