Public Input Sought on Rockport Property

The Citizens Committee for Michigan State Parks and the Department of Natural
Resources will host an informational meeting Sept.19 at the Thunder Bay National Marine

The Rockport property, located on Lake Huron and formerly owned by Consumers Energy,

karst, sinkholes, historic and archaeological sites and an old quarry.

The citizens committee is an advisory committee created by legislation that Governor

has a voice in the planning, development and operations of Michiganís state park
system.

of the stateís natural resources for current and future generations.

So I guess you have to go to the meeting to have your voice heard? Can't we write letters or make phone calls?
