E-M:/ Brighton State Recreation Area on the auction block



'Tis the season to sell the state's public parkland.

Brighton State Recreation Area is also on the State's auction block. A public hearing for Livington County will take place Wed, December 13 in Howell.

Friends of Brighton Recreation have been fighting to protect this parkland for several years. An article in today's Detroit News covers both the Proud Lake and Brighton State Recreation Area park sale controversies and the public hearings:
