RELEASE|November 4, 2021 Contact:Ann Bollin
State Rep. Ann Bollin today thanked the hundreds of Livingston County residents who voiced concerns to the Michigan Department of Natural Resources about a proposed gravel and sand mining operation in Genoa Township.
Bollin, of Brighton Township, said the DNR has announced it will not move ahead with the proposed project to establish a gravel pit or tree see orchard after hearing concerns from people in the community.
“I’m glad the DNR is being transparent with its plans today, and that people took a stand against something they felt just didn’t make sense for our community,” Bollin said. “Your voices have been heard, and the DNR will not move forward with its proposal.”
"Bollin also thanked the DNR team that spent time to learn more about local concerns, the land’s history and the potential impact on the community."
