Default Michigan Moto Mania?

I stumble across this site; sounds like it could be interesting, we may have to check this out!

Michigan Moto Mania is going to be a one of a kind off road park for motorcycles, quads and various other vehicles. The land is located in Harrison, MI and is perfect for this type of compound. It is 200 acres of rolling terrain. This facility will be a year round operation and will have on site storage (50 units to start for bikes, quads, gear etc.), rustic camping, a bathroom and shower facility and a mechanics area.

I printed the Clare Review paper last night and on the front page it appears that allot of the neighbors are starting crap about the noise, tresspassing on there property up there. Hurting the wildlife areas, bullshit, bullshit.
Basically there gonna try to get the land use permit for a great park to stop. Filing legal actions and getting petitions. I hope that we as a community might help somehow if needed. We need this park and need to show our support anyway we can. Any comments

Based on the Clare Sentinel the lawsuit(s) are based on the failure of the Township to follow multiple laws. Looks like the broke no less than 4 laws regarding land use for residential property and zoning ordinances. Looks like they issued a "special use" permit, but those permits are only temporary and the property must be rezoned commercial to be operated as a business, along with dealing with the other laws broken to this point. Issue will be getting property rezoned after the fact now considering they have started legal proceedings.
They have another meeting next week and looks like a special meeting with be help 5/12 to inform the public of what the township will be doing to correct the "screw up" and address questions from the public.
