It would be great if we could get everyone to post on the forum "Thank you Dan and Carol" for the massive effort you have made to make Beaver Island a fun place to go. It is going to hurt everyone losing the hundreds, if not thousands of visitors, that you have brought to Beaver or made their stay so great they returned another year.

Very sad situation. It depends on who you are that determines if you can go ahead and build a non conforming building at the corner of Freesoil and Michigan. I was hoping BI had moved on from the days when most decisions were made out of the public view by self appointed power brokers. In the past townships only became the rubber stamps for their means. Until all that changes, expect more to leave the Island until the number of diminishing returns is reached.
I was more optimist this summer than I have been in years with the Island Summit, Island Fellow, Pam's great continued efforts along with Patrick's, Kevin's and others. I'm hoping that these efforts are the future of the Island and not the old ways of controlling all change and the future only for self interests.
The Island continues to welcome new money but not new change or ideas; that is the change that needs to happen.

Forum Rules: Topics and posts do not necessarily express our views. The point of this forum is to allow everyone to post their thoughts and ideas, talk about Beaver Island and all things related, and have a place to chat with other Beaver Island folks. We do not moderate posts based on whether we agree or disagree with a particular topic. Everyone is invited and encouraged to post. The rules are:
1.) Please be kind and considerate, and keep the forum constructive.
2.) Please include your name with your post. We value everyone's right to express their views, but in cases where someone else may be negatively impacted by a post or where the lack of a name causes confusion, anonymous posts may be deleted.
3.) Please keep the forum clean and appropriate for any age. Posts which are intended to attack or offend others are not appropriate.
