LDFA Helps Clear the Way for New Business
The Huron Township, MI LDFA get feet wet making wetlands work for business. This commission is dedicated to helping business succeed in Huron Township.
The group first familiarized themselves with many types of wetlands. Most people are familiar with the cattail or lily pad wetland found in areas with standing water, but wetlands can also be grassy meadows, shrubby fields, or mature forests. Many wetland areas have only a high ground water table and standing water may not be visible. Types of wetlands include deciduous swamps, wet meadows, emergent marshes, conifer swamps, wet prairies, shrub-scrub swamps, fens, and bogs. One of the properties being considered in Huron Township was actually a mature forest wetland and another was a shrubby field.
Chairman Mr. RP Lilly stated, “We want developers to know about all the benefits they can take advantage of when they move into an LDFA zone. We have a great group of individuals that aren’t afraid to get their “feet wet” (literally in some cases) when trying to make a situation work for potential business.” This was demonstrated by the group efforts to research wetland banks as well as appropriate wetland sites for the prospective new arrival. The process produced several different options and considered 2.83 acres.
