Don Passenger, an attorney representing the developers of a proposed RV park in Torch River (Michigan), said a new injunction issued by the court won’t have much of an impact.
However, it might stop the property owners Jim and Lori Brewer from carrying out the work that Michigan’s Department of Environment, Great Lakes, and Energy are requiring to prevent more runoff from escaping the property and contaminating the wetlands, Passenger said.
“There were some things that were proposed for late spring or summer 2022 that would involve working on water retention basins that probably will have to be put off or there will have to be a specific motion sought to do the work if EGLE insists that it be done,” he said.
Meanwhile, other legal disputes regarding the controversial park are proceeding to the courts.
Milton Township will hear public feedback on a brand new version of the proposal, which is slightly smaller in size for the same property.
The public hearing is scheduled for 6 p.m. today at the Elk Rapids High School auditorium, 308 Meguzee Point Rd., according to the meeting notice. People can also participate via Zoom at https://us02web.zoom.us/j/82790872221.
The Brewers, along with the co-owner of a nearby marina, are proposing a 70-site RV park on land between Torch River and Miller roads.
Torch Elk Skegemog Alliance questioned the project in court after the Brewers broke ground without a special use permit in place.
