Thanks for the recent posting about the DEQ's efforts to be
builder-friendly in Macomb County when it comes to wetlands permits.  One
would hardly think the agency could get friendlier...it appears many
developers don't even bother to apply for permits, so what are the delays
that so concern them?

The following statistics are interesting.  Remember that Macomb County is a
coastal county, yet it consistently falls below its neighbors in wetland
permits.


1998 permits

Oakland County, 168
Wayne County, 44
Macomb County, 21

1999 permits

Oakland County, 155
Wayne County, 60
Macomb County, 32
