Just got home from work. Obviously wasn't able to make it to the meeting. How did it go? Or is it still in progress?

Someone needs to explain to the local residents that NIMBY is a phrase that is usually used in a derogatory manner....they seem to wear it like a badge of honor?

They should close the ORV park in Detroit.

No f-ing way that was actually used as an excuse! Were they blind folded too?!?

Hoping for a vote on the proposal to move forward with testing soon. If the board votes in favor of the proposal to move forward with sound, water and other testing, I will have a front row seat at a public lynching.

Someone just suggested that Detroit would in fact be a better location for the proposed park.

So many uninformed idiots there tonight. Bringing up studies that were done in MA? Okay. Well it's a tiny state. That's why you can hear them. And the cancer thing is hilarious. As was the Grateful dead comment. I wish people would have read the damn packet and alot of the funding and other questions would have been answered in advance. Also. It's NOT just an ORV park. And oh by the way. Maps aren't to scale. That's why there's a scale on them. And why aren't other areas grasping this opportunity? It's because just like was stated by multiple people there isn't many locations with this kind of topography and still be this close to SE Michigan. Stupid outta hurt.

no one left to hate the noise, crime, and dust.
plenty of debris to wheel on.
even we could not possibly raise the crime rate!
large areas of vacant land uber cheap(till they figure out anyone wants it).

sounds like a good idea really.

call it "wheelin in the hood"?

Then someone said put it at the silver dome. Yeah no. You're stupid and have no experience on this subject. They just got done explaining why this site was chosen.

They appear to be voting on this tonight! Not looking good. The township board members are speaking right now and are ripping it apart!

Sounds pretty much like a no go, by the way the board is talking.

So we are done.
Thanks to those who helped.

I think this idea will now be gone forever.
