Opposition Surfaces on Michigan RV Park Plan
American developers are still looking to launch motorcoach resorts in the wake of the Great Recession, according to WWTV/WWUP-TV, Cadillac, Mich. For example, a developer from Cheboygan Waterfront LLC thinks a piece of land in Cheboygan, Mich., would be the perfect place for a luxury motorcoach community.
But, not everyone is sharing his thoughts.
Some people who live nearby say they don't want to see the proposed project move forward.
The developer, Todd Wyett, wants to include more than 100 units for people to purchase to live six months of the year.
In order to do that, he would have to fill in 3 3/4 acres of wetland on the property.
He says in doing so, he says he would be required to compensate for those wetlands by creating new wetland areas elsewhere.
A neighbor to the property says she doesn't think it's right to mess with nature.
She also says she doesn't want this development right next door.
Wyett believes the proposed $10 million development would be a large asset to Cheboygan's economy.
The Department of Natural Resources and Environment and the Army Corps of Engineers will have the final say whether or not the project can move forward.
