News from the Week

  • The Enterprise reports that a Munson Medical Center and Michigan State University have announced the establishment of a new medical education campus in northern Michigan.
  • Marty Hogan (aka smartee_martee) takes special care to document Michigan’s vanishing farms, homes and other structures. I’ve long been a fan of his work and I was excited to see that he visited Leelanau a few weeks ago! Here are his Leelanau photos. He uploads all his pictures big and they make great computer backgrounds!
  • The Grand Vision is a citizen-led land use and transportation study that will help to guide future growth in our region for the next 50+ years. Next Tuesday (Aug 26) from 6-7:30 PM at the county Government Center between Lake Leelanau & Suttons Bay there will be a meeting to update folks on the progress to date and on The Grand Vision Decision, October 7-28, 2008. Read this Enterprise article for details and also check out thegrandvision.org for a whole lot more information, articles, photos, video and reports including citizen generated maps of what Leelanau could look like.
