REQUEST TO MI DNR FOR ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT STUDY

PUBLIC STATEMENT/REQUEST TO THE DNR

September 20 & 21, 2017; Updated: October 5, 2017

 Because of our deep concern for the environment and integrity of Belle Isle as a public park, we the undersigned, believe the Michigan Department of Natural Resources should commission an independent third-party environmental impact study of the effects of the Detroit Grand Prix on the island habitat. Since the public has a high stake in good stewardship and protection of the park environment, such a study must be done and its findings assessed before any new contract is awarded the Roger Penske organization and the Grand Prix.
