E-M:/ Fisherman Landing, Muskegon Lake



-------------------------------------------------------------------------
Enviro-Mich message from HAMILTREEF@aol.com
-------------------------------------------------------------------------

This message is all the users of boating and camping access that use 
Fisherman Landing on Muskegon Lake.  We need to write a letter to the NRTF 
board and let them be aware that the city of Muskegon is preparing to take 
away the NRTF's funded Fisherman Landing.  The strongest message should be 
that the proposed land trade is absolutely illegal, not even close to equal 
value regardless of any additional lump moneys added, and totally non 
functional as a boat launch and campground.

    In short, the Fisherman Landing land grab plan by City of Muskegon for 
their cohort developer is a scam against the NRTF and the resource users of 
Michigan in violation of the Public Trust Doctrine.

    1.  Ask who within the NRTF is willing to be responsible for protecting 
the public resources purchased by the NRTF?
    2.  Will the NRTF protect and step in to veto the land trade and 
destruction of Fisherman Landing by the city of Muskegon?
