Petition to Ban Spaceports in Powell Township

Citizens for a Safe & Clean Lake Superior is assisting Powell Township residents in a petition to amend Powell's zoning ordinances. The amendment would ban the construction and operation of spaceports in Powell Township in favor of protecting public, private, and environmental interests in the township. 

CSCLS has been collecting petition signatures from Powell Township residents and other concerned parties at our events. We will continue to collect signatures preceding a public hearing on the matter, which will likely be scheduled for early Fall 2023. Check back for more updates!
