Algea Minimize

After receiving several complainants as to the strong odor coming from the lake, particularly Harold Dr. between Ann St. and N. 6th St., I contacted the Monroe County Health Department.  I met with an employee from the MCHD Environmental Health Section.  He inspected the shoreline in that area.   I was advised the odor was coming from decomposition of the algae lying on the beach. The representative from the Health Department further advised the odor itself is not a health hazard; however, he would not suggest body contact in the area where the algae is decomposing.

As of this time, the Monroe County Health Department has no means to remove the algae from the lake.  Jason Childress, the Representative from the Health Department is going to contact the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration in an attempt to have them complete further testing of samples taken for an in depth study of the materials washing up on shore.

There is no quick fix to this problem.  There are committees being formed to address these problems.  As usual you have one group blaming the other group for the problem: i.e. farmers, waste water treatment plants, dredging of rivers etc. etc. 

As I learn more of what actions are being taken to address these problems I will keep you the residents of Luna Pier informed.      

Thank You,

 Mayor Davison

 
State of the City Address Minimize

On May 1st. 2014 the City of Luna Pier held its first State of the City Address at Water Tower Park. I would like to thank the residents and city council members who attended. I intend to have a least one State of the City Address each year I am in office. For those residents who were unable to attend, I would like to give you a synopsis of what was covered and discussed in the address. As we move forward city government will be transparent and we will make every attempt to keep the citizens apprised of actions taken by city government.

Master Plan Information Minimize
A New Luna Pier Master Plan
 
Luna Pier is a great community – great for many reasons.   The people, the lake, the beach all combine to create a terrific place to call home.   The community we all see and experience each day is really the result of thousands of decisions made by residents and elected officials over many years.   Past and current residents have built a community that is easy to become attached to, and easy to feel optimistic about.   
 
But what will the next 10 to 20 years bring for Luna Pier?  Will it become more attractive, and livable, or will it decline in comparison to other communities.   That will depend upon future decision-making.   To be sure, there is no way to predict exactly what the future will bring as many things are simply not controlled locally.   However, what is controlled locally is whether the city has, and works toward, a long-term vision for community development.   All communities face this same challenge when it comes to creating the future.   In the really successful communities however, there is a noticeable sense of being fully committed to long-term community planning and a sense what they want to become.   They develop this vision from substantial discussion with residents and they have high expectations for what they can be.  They capitalize on their strengths and they have a sense of authenticity.  
 
The opportunity to create this long-term vision for Luna Pier will unfold in 2009.   The City was successful in obtaining a grant from the State of Michigan to help fund a new Community Master Plan.   The work to be done will include many opportunities for residents and community organizations to weigh in on what they would like the future of Luna Pier to be like.   While no one is suggesting change for the sake of change, there is so much potential in Luna Pier and your input is needed to fully explore the available choices.   The Luna Pier Planning Commission will be spearheading this effort, and residents will have many opportunities to share thoughts and ideas in the coming months.  However, if you have a desire to participate in this effort in a more active role, please contact Greg Stewart or Mayor Liske and let them know of your interest.  Otherwise, please watch future newsletters, the city web site and newspapers for future meeting notices.   2009 will be a very important year for the City of Luna Pier as it charts a course for the future.
