On Wednesday, August 4, 2021 Joy Mulinex, the Executive Director of the Ohio Lake Erie Commission (OLEC) met with Ann Foeller to listen to the reasons why the Cullen Park and Grassy Island projects should not go forward. Ms. Mulinex generously gave 2 hours of her time to go over the information, ask questions, and gain a full understanding of our concerns.
At the conclusion of the meeting, Ms. Foeller asked if Ms. Mulinex could assist in arranging a meeting with Mary Mertz, Director of ODNR, and Laurie Stevenson, Director of Ohio EPA, both of whom are OLEC commissioners. Ms. Mulinex mentioned that the Cullen Park wetland designs are being reviewed and may be changed. She could not commit to assisting us at this time but left the door open for reconsideration after the designs are finalized.
