Petition Tag - leelanau county
Leelanau County continues to fall behind with regards to to adequate Broadband internet access , due to un-served, and under-served areas. Geographically, Leelanau County has been bypassed by affordable and accessible middle mile infrastructure upon which last-mile services can be built.
As education, emergency management, telecommuting, and commerce are more and more dependent upon adequate internet access, We hereby request your acceptance of the need and necessity, and demonstrate interest and show of support as the elected representatives of the People of Leelanau County.
Since the winter of 2000, Sugar Loaf resort has been closed, resulting in a loss of the employment for over 300 people at the resort itself, not to mention the impact on the economy of Leelanau County, and the Grand Traverse region as a whole.
The residents, business owners, and tax payers can no longer accept the fate of what once was our economic engine. It's time to take control and form a public/private collaborative for re-development.
NEW!!! 3 Visioning Sessions are scheduled for June 24 & June 25. Reservations are required - RSVP by calling 231-256-9812. For more information, visit www.leelanau.cc/sugarloaf.asp
