News from the Week

It’s tough to say what the week’s top story was, so let’s say that it was a judge upholding the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality’s permit for a new marina along the Lake Leelanau Narrows. The permit allows a 250+ foot dock on the east side of the Narrows and includes removal of an existing boathouse and pilings. The slips would be used by residents of Provemont Village, the residential project that is being developed by Wayne Tyge. Other stories included Suttons Bay selecting a new Superintendent, a slew of state Natural Resources Trust fund money for Leelanau, a County Road Commission decision to cut the Michigan champion cottonwood in Leland. In addition to the above picture, there was also a very cool photo of Omena Bay.
The Week’s Weather

It’s hard to believe that at this time last week we were shivering and shoveling and planning how to get time to cross-country ski and snowshoe and lamenting that Sugar Loaf wasn’t open. 5 days of 40s and ran has pretty much erased all that. If you want snow, check out this photo from last year at the Leland Report.
