E-M:/ Proud Lake editorial in Oakland Press



Today's Oakland Press came out firmly on the side of protecting and preserving Proud Lake State Recreation Area as a state park. So did the 100 or so people and organizations who attended last week's public hearing on a cold and rainy December night, at Oakland County Sportmen's Club.

People at the Livingston County DNR public hearing also spoke out against the land consolidation strategy and the selling off of a large portion of Brighton State Recreation Area. The public definitely gets the land ethic and wants the DNR to protect parkland.

Both these portions of state parkland were intentionally left out of legislation passed last spring to curtail the State from selling off state parkland.

Proud Lake land should be kept free of development

EDITORIAL
Residents and officials in Commerce Township are voicing strong opposition to the proposed sale of 564 acres of state land along Wise Road that is part of the Proud Lake State Recreation Area.
