Nearly 60 people from West Michigan filled a seminar room at Grand Valley’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center November 28 to hear a live webcast of Gov. Rick Snyder's vision for the state on energy and the environment.
People from West Michigan businesses and organizations, including the Sierra Club, Muskegon Chamber of Commerce and Grand Valley, listened to Snyder’s messages on the importance of preserving Michigan’s natural resources, such as the Great Lakes and the land, and also focusing on alternative energy and how the state can leverage it.
Snyder suggested areas of improvement and focus throughout the state, such as recycling processes in counties, urban farming and preserving the state’s trails, among others.
“Now is the time to be proactive,” Snyder said. “We are the comeback state and now it’s time for us to step up on important issues like energy and the environment. Today we’re starting a dialogue that will result in action.”
