DEWITT, Mich. — On Monday, the DeWitt Township Board of Trustees is expected to discuss a proposed gravel pit that was reported on earlier this month.

Residents are against a proposed mine that would put the community in the middle of two such operations.

“I have been living in my home since 1957,” Clark Road resident Faye Hagy said. “I’ve seen many changes, some good and some not so good, for example, someone wanting to mine across the street from our homes.”

This isn’t the first time a mine has been proposed at this site. In 2008, the idea was shot down.

Residents are reaching out to the planning commission in hopes that they’d be able to get it shot down again.

People that live on Boichot Road and in the White Oaks neighborhood argue that their homes will lose their marketability in terms of reselling.

The township board will make a decision Monday.
