Neighbors say proposed development is dumping ground
BENTON TOWNSHIP, Mich. - Critics say a proposed development in Benton Township has become nothing more than a dumping ground.In April of 2010, Don Meeks Construction out of Benton Harbor proposed a neighborhood development on Territorial Road. So far no houses have gone up and neighbors say the developer is just using the land to get rid of excess waste.
"There goes a truck now," said Steve Popke. He lives on Territorial Road next door to the project and says everyday he sees trucks dumping dirt on the property."I personally feel it's illegal because I was not notified about a dump being put next to my house," he said.
