Hi everyone - just a reminder to the Pittsfield folks - we have a public
hearing scheduled for April 17, Tuesday, here at Pittsfield Twp. Hall, 6201
W. Michigan Ave, 7 pm. (Sorry about the conflict with Sierra Club - the
speaker sounds great!)
The DEQ will take comments and concerns re: Pittsfield Glen proposed
subdivision, near the Northwest corner of Platt and Textile Roads. The
developer wants a DEQ permit to fill a portion of wetland to build a road.
Concerns are whether this already flooded area can take more development
pressure, and whether there isn't a more "prudent and feasible alternative"
which is the DEQ standard. You can't miss the sight if you drive by - It's
where the water comes up over Textile road. Don't pull off on the shoulder
to take pictures - I can tell you from experience that you'll get stuck!
Stay in the center of the road!
I also have grave concerns as to whether the wetlands were delineated
correctly, but as we all know, "just because it's wet doesn't mean it's a
wetland." Please come, and if you can't make it, contact me and I'll give
you info to send written comments if you'd like. Christina Lirones.
944-1637, Clerk's Office, Pittsfield.
