Erie Neighbors & Residents Against Eminent Domain

Erie Neighbors & Residents Against Eminent Domain (ENRAGED) are opposing the development of a intermodal rail yard on 400 acres of property in Erie Township Michigan. The project has been proposed by the Monroe County Industrial Development Corporation.

Opponents are concerned about how this project will impact nearby residential communities and the future development of quality business sites in the area. Particular issues involve:
  • Air, water, noise, and light pollution
  • Increased traffic & railroad crossing delays for the region
  • Minimal economic benefits for the Township
  • Project is inconsistent with Land Use Plans
