March Marks the Final Chance to Comment On and Attend a Public Scoping Meeting on GLMRIS
The scoping comment period for the Great Lakes and Mississippi River Interbasin Study (GLMRIS) ends on March 31. These next few weeks will be the last chance for the public, through substantive comments, to assist the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with refining the scope of GLMRIS to focus on significant issues, as well as eliminate issues that are not significant from further detailed study. Comments may be submitted electronically through this website on the Submit a Scoping Comment page, mailed into the Corps Chicago District Office or given orally at the last public meeting in Ann Arbor. Please see the Getting Involved page for more information on ways to submit comments.
On Tuesday, March 8, 2011, the last public scoping meeting will be held in Ypsilanti from 2:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Ann Arbor Marriott Ypsilanti at Eagle Crest, located at 1275 S. Huron St. Identical presentations about the study will be given at 2:00 p.m. and 5:30 p.m., each followed by the oral comment period. If you plan to make an oral comment, please register on this website on the Public Scoping Meetings page.
