Public invited to Crystal Lake meeting|
Michigan Department of Natural Resources officials today announced an
Oct. 22 public informational meeting, from 6-8 p.m., to present the
final conceptual plans for a new boat access site on the 9,711-acre
Crystal Lake in Benzie County.
The public is invited to attend and express thoughts and
concerns relative to the proposed boat access site. The meeting will
involve a presentation by the project design consultants with a question
and answer period to follow. DNR Parks and Recreation Bureau staff will
be on hand, as well as local community leaders.
"The Parks and Recreation Bureau is very interested in gathering
public input and comments regarding the development of this proposed
boat access site," said Vicki Anthes, DNR Parks and Recreation Bureau
planning chief. "It is located in a very beautiful part of the state,
and our plans are to give boaters access without destroying the
character and aesthetics of the area."

School Auditorium, 9300 Homestead Road, Benzonia, MI 49616, phone:
