Dear Fellow Paddlers,
The City of Ann Arbor will hold public meetings to discuss changes to
Argo Dam, future management of the Huron River, and a proposal from
the firm, Recreation, Engineering, and Planning (www.wwparks. com).
The meetings will occur In Ann Arbor on the following dates:
– Wednesday, January 28, 7 – 10 pm – Location: TBD
– Saturday, January 31, 9 – 12 am – Location: Cobblestone Farm
– Thursday, February 5, 7 – 10 pm – Location: TBD
It will be essential for members of the local paddling
groups–especially RSCK, EMU, and LAWWP–to attend these meetings.
Your help is needed to raise awareness for the sport of whitewater
kayaking and to show support for new, sustainable whitewater resources
in Ann Arbor. Participation in whitewater kayaking continues to grow,
but few people know that the paddling community in lower Michigan has
used the Huron for practice and training for over 40 years! Now we may
have the opportunity to paddle close to home, improve our river’s
ecology, and share our sport with hundreds of new paddlers. Stay tuned
for more details, including locations for the evening sessions.
