The future of 27 acres of forest and
fields near North Campus is eliciting
some unprecedented environmental
questions from a citizens' group, a
developer, and the city planning com-
The commission must decide whether
to honor the Citizens Concerned About
the Black Pond Development's petition
for formal participation in planning a
proposed residential development.
THE PETITION, submitted under
section five of the Michigan Environ-
mental Protection Act, is the first of its
kind ever presented in the city.
The MEPA, written by University
Law Prof. Joseph Sax, was enacted 10
years ago to insure that natural resour-
ces are protected from impairment or
destruction where there are
economically "feasible and prudent"

over due for some "large earthquakes
in the excess of 8.0 (on the Richter'
Scale) in the next 20 to 30 years."
Malcolm Johnston, a former
University professor currently working
for the National Center for Earthquake
Research in Mineral Park, Calif., said
his organization is searching for any
clue as to what causes quakes that
"might offer any hope at all, from the
physical, to whathmight be called the
Johnston said that while no quake-
predicting techniques have been per-
fected yet, he is reasonably optimistic
that scentists someday will be able to
warn persons before impending ear-

"I SUSPECT he (Dahlmann) looks at
this (the revised plan) as sufficient in
meeting the law's requirements,"
Thomas Smedes, a member of the
citizens' group, said.
Smedes-said the group would have a
more difficult time proving that natural
resources are in danger, if, as Dahlman'
proposed in his second plan, there is no
development in the forested area.
Some areas of MEPA, including the
term "natural resources" have not yet
been defined fully by the courts. Trees
have been defined as natural resources,
but the group says many other things
which they consider natural resources
have not been defined by the courts as
UNDER MEPA, the group is certain
their case against the second develop-
ment plan would be weakened and
would most likely fight it through
zoning ordinances since Dahlmann
must file for rezoning, Smedes said.
"In the long run I don't think there is
much of a gain" for the environment, if
the second plan is approved, Smedes
HE SAID only the developer would
gain because the revised plan is both
less expensive because fewer trees
would be removed, and more
marketable because it offers future
residents more privacy.
The citizen's group said the residen-
tial development plan, if approved,
would destroy most of a hardwood
forest that covers one half of a 27-acre
area between Pontiac Trail and the
Leslie Golf Course. The group's mem-
bers want a formal role in the planning
process to ensure that their concerns
and suggestions are considered, said
University Law Prof. Steven Pepe, a
representative of the citizen's group.
TYPICALLY, individual residents
and groups concerned about proposed
developments voice their concerns
during public hearing sessions before
the planning commission and city
council approve or deny a plan.
The planning commission tabled ac-
tion on the petition last. week after a
meeting between developer Dennis
Dahlmann and representatives of the
Black Pond citizen's group.
At the meeting, Dahlmann presented
a possible alternate site plan which
would reduce the number of residential
units from 238 to 228. He said the
revised plan would leave the wooded
area undeveloped. y
