    Environmental Events

    The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.These are challenging times. The environment is under assault as never before. We can no longer sit back and watch what unfolds. The urgency of the climate crisis demands that protecting and healing the environment take center stage in our lives. Understanding the urgency, the Board of NMEAC is working to expand our base and create opportunities for everyone to become part of the solution rather than remaining part of the problem.

    We are partnering with other local groups and agencies working to mitigate climate change, shut down Line 5, become a 100% renewable energy community, protect our trees and clean water, prevent urban sprawl, and preserve and protect our special region.

    Sprawl Makes a Comeback

    NMEAC voiced opposition to the ill-conceived plans for the 81 on East Bay development on the Old Mission Peninsula and helped support a new group called Preserve Old Mission. The development site includes steep ridges along East Bay and a spectacular woods running along the tops of those steep ridges. The developer wants to level the ridges to gain views of the Bay. We are also monitoring future developments and will be working to be sure setbacks from the Bay and the Boardman River are enforced.

    Interlochen Wetlands

    NMEAC has been involved in challenging an MDEQ permit which allows wetlands to be filled for a small development near Interlochen. We joined together with Interlochen Center for the Arts and local residents to challenge the permit in circuit court. We have been part of this issue since 2007.
