Meetings to Discuss Draft Kalamazoo River Assessment|
The status and future of the Kalamazoo River are the topics of public meetings scheduled in southwest Michigan in June to be conducted by the Fisheries Division of the Department of Natural Resources to receive comments on the Draft Kalamazoo River Assessment.
The meetings will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the following locations:
Battle Creek Albion
"The Kalamazoo River has undergone significant change in the past 30 years," said Jay Wesley,
The intent of the meetings is to receive public feedback on the draft assessment and for proposed management options for the river. Public comment will be received until July 2005. The river assessment will be used by Fisheries Division and by other agencies and organizations to develop management plans and actions for the river.
