After six months of development, the MI Great Lakes Plan was officially released this week by Lt. Gov. John Cherry and the Michigan Office of the Great Lakes.

The plan was launched following recommendations from the Michigan United Conservation Clubs in its report, “Michigan’s Role in Great Lakes Protection and Restoration.” The MUCC was instrumental in organizing nine public and stakeholder sessions across the state in coordination with the Office of the Great Lake’s drafting of the plan.

MUCC policy director Donna Stine says the plan contains a significant blueprint for investing in much-needed Great Lakes infrastructure projects that are prime candidates for economic stimulus dollars.

"The recommendations clearly outline projects which create jobs while also addressing numerous problems facing the Great Lakes. From fixing sewers to removing dams, all involve putting people to work while restoring Michigan's natural infrastructure,” Stine said in a statement.
