DNR Invites Public to Discuss Drummond Island Resource Needs
The Department of Natural Resources is inviting the public to participate in a meeting that will set the stage to provide a comprehensive resource management plan for Drummond Island.
Throughout the next year, the DNR, in cooperation with a group of stakeholders interested in Drummond Island, will be working to create a Comprehensive Resource Management Plan. The final plan would provide resource management recommendations and alternatives that are acceptable within the mandates of the DNR’s mission, meeting the overall needs of Drummond Islanders, the DNR, and resource users; while promoting the unique natural features of the island as a special place to attract resource-based tourist destination. The DNR expects to have a plan in draft format by late winter 2012.
A public meeting will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, June 8, at the Drummond Island Township Hall, located at 23395 E. Pine St., Drummond Island. The DNR would like to understand which resource values should be considered when developing the plan and any other issues that the team should address related to natural resources and Drummond Island. All interested persons are encouraged to attend and participate.
Individuals can also submit written comments via e-mail or U.S. mail. Send comments to: DNR Wildlife Division, Attn: Terry Minzey, 1990 US-41 South, Marquette, MI 49855 or via e-mail minzeyt@michigan.gov.
Persons with disabilities needing accommodations for effective participation in the meeting should contact Autumn Feldpausch at 517-373-1263, at least seven days prior to the meeting date to request mobility, visual, hearing or other assistance.
The Michigan Department of Natural Resources is committed to the conservation, protection, management, use and enjoyment of the state's natural and cultural resources for current and future generations. For more information, go to www.michigan.gov/dnr.


This proposal could result in SIGNIFICANT NEGATIVE IMPACTS to the ORV Route AND Trail systems on Drummond Island. It is URGENTLY requested that anyone who is able PLEASE attend the meeting in support of motorized recreational access to the Island’s public lands! We have already received word that the anti-access forces have mobilized and WILL BE IN ATTENDANCE. Do NOT let them be the only voices heard! Be polite, be calm, but BE PRESENT!

THANK YOU,
GLFWDA Land Use Committee

An intro thread from a 5'1" 375 Lb chick that looks lie a circus freak will go for 2 years and 129 pages here, but land use rarely gets noticed. Go to GLFWDA and it's vice-versa.

What I don't get is that 2 years ago we went through all this with every stake holder and it resulted in the current OHV trails. Now we have to do it all over again? Makes no sense.

Wish I could make it, but it would be a tight run. Have a motorcycle demo to put on at the state capitol Weds AM followed by a meeting with SOS. Not scheduled to leave Lansing until early afternoon.


I agree with the comments on how lax Land use is here on the "Largest offroad forum in the Midwest". Sad representation for sure.
