                       DEQ Plans Public Meeting in Traverse City

	Department of Environmental Quality Director Steve Chester
announces a public meeting to be held in Traverse City on February 27,
	Director Chester and several of his key staff will be visiting
communities throughout the state of Michigan to introduce themselves and
solicit comments on environmental issues facing their community.  The
Traverse City public meeting will be held at the Howe Arena (Civic
Center), 1213 West Civic Center Drive.  The event is from 6 p.m. to 8
p.m. and will begin with a short presentation by Director Chester and an
introduction of staff present.  The program will then be opened for an
informal question and answer session.
	"The DEQ represents more than just a Lansing constituency," said
DEQ Director Chester.  "Conducting these outreach sessions around
Michigan provides citizens with the opportunity to not only meet the
decision-makers of environmental decisions in their community, but to
engage them in one-on-one discussions regarding environmental issues
directly affecting them and their community."
