If you previously cared about saving Humbug Marsh and you live in the Detroit River, Rouge River, Huron River, River Rasin, or Ecourse Creek Watersheds this one is for you .

A significant wetland adjacent to Humbug Marsh Area is threatened with development. This is the same community that allowed County Wide Landfill, Grand Saqua Trailer Park, and other projects to come in and the Humbug Marsh controversy.

The hearing is to be held at the Gibraltar Community Center, 29340 S. Gibraltar Road, Gibraltar, MI this Thursday at 7 pm.

This hearing will allow concerned citizens to make comments regarding a wetland application for a development that could impact the riparian corridor, wetland, and floodplain that surrounds the Brownstown and Marsh Creek that flow through the proposed development.

Application for Permit 05-82-0172-P under Part 301
"Applicant proposes to excavate, place fill and utilities in wetlands, and construct stormwater detention basin for the purpose of developing the site into an integrated residential community with single-family homes and attached condominiums. The project site is east of the intersection of Fort Street and Gibraltar Road. The proposed wetland excavation for roads, lots and infrastructure will remove approximately 534.49 cubic yards of material from 38,545.9 square feet or 0.88 acres of wetlands. The proposed wetland fill will use 7975.14 cubic yards of material and impact an area of 123,316 square feet or 2.83 acres. Utilities include 12 inch diameter storm sewer and watermmain and 10 inch diameter sanitary sewer line placed below the wetlands. Two proposed stormwater detention ponds will outlet to the adjacent wetlands through 8 inch diameter pipes. Compensatory mitigation is proposed.

A person does not have to hail from the general area of HAMBURG....anyone..from MICHIGAN...OHIO....CANADA ( ONTARIO ) who has enjoyed the benefits of the "marshlands" and realizes the "importance of" and the "impact upon" this valuable resource should respond to the encroachment of development on or near wetlands. ONCE DEVELOPED/LOST FOREVER.
