This is one of three public feedback sessions to gather input on the Line 5 Alternatives study released in early July. This is an opportunity to make your voice heard and will impact the state's response to the studies.
Speakers will be allowed three minutes to make comments on a first-come, first-served basis. Yielding time to another speaker will not be allowed. Speakers are asked to make comments at only one public session, to give everyone a chance to offer their thoughts.
NOTE: The start time of this event has been moved to 8:00 AM.
The State of Michigan has suggested the following guidance on evaluating the draft Line 5 Alternatives Report in preparation for commenting o the report or attending the meeting:
Clarity: Are any parts of the report confusing and need clarification?
Data: Are there any sources of information that should have been included that were not?
Completeness: Upon review of the report, did the contractor fail to cover a key topic? If something was left out, was the reason for doing so addressed and is the reasoning sufficient for the exclusion?
Methodology: Was the methodology understandable or does more information need to be given? Is it sufficient to accurately address the questions presented? Are there any flaws in the methodology used?
Cost: Are all cost components identified, or is there a category of costs that were not considered?
Report Assumptions: Are the assumptions in the report realistic? Are they explained well?
