On August 31,  the United States Army Corps of Engineers issued its long
awaited decision on Made In Detroit Inc's. application for a permit to
develop 420 houses on Humbug Marsh, the last mile of undeveloped Detroit
River on the US side.

The two following links provide news coverage, and the complete USACE
response and denial.   It is quite readable and interesting.  It may
prove to be a valuable resource.

1.  The following link is the 80 page decison by the USACE on Humbug.

Once on the site there is a place to click on the "Made In Detroit"
case. The August 31 document is the long report.
The press release is also available dated Sept. 1.

2. Detroit Free Press, 9-1-99, ACE Denial: ACE press release; Made in
Detroit Inc's response:

However gratifying this decision,  the community working on saving this
natural resource is not resting on its laurels.
