Granot Loma, the location of the proposed spaceport, is in Marquette County, MI.
STEPS TO WRITE A LETTER:
Dear County Commissioners,
<INSERT OPTIONAL PERSONAL OPENING STATEMENT(s) HERE>
I<We> oppose the plan of the Michigan Aerospace Manufacturers Association (MAMA) to construct a heavy industrial rocket launch site on Lake Superior’s coastal habitat in Powell Township, at Granot Loma, just north of Marquette for the following reasons:
Intensive industrial rezoning of Lake Superior’s shoreline will permanently change the unique character of Powell Township, Marquette County, and our Lake Superior coastline, and the quality of life which they offer. These places are worth protecting and preserving. This proposed spaceport will damage that quality of life and open the door to more industrialization.
In terms of economic growth, our freshwater coast is already attracting jobseekers, and others seeking relief from climate change, all factors which will continue to foster sustainable economic growth, without destructive industrialization.
I<We> respectfully ask you to advocate for your constituents in Marquette County and Powell Township, by withdrawing your prior support for this launch plan. Please speak out against it now and shine the light on MAMA’s misrepresentations and complete lack of transparency.
<INSERT OPTIONAL PERSONAL CLOSING STATEMENT(s) HERE>
Please publicly note my letter of opposition to the spaceport proposal and to any associated proposals for zoning changes. Please provide copies to fellow board/commission/committee members and post online with the board/commission/committee website minutes documents.
