Neighbors are irritated about the dark brown dust blowing into their homes from an on-going project at the baseball diamond across the street.
Recently purchased patio furniture remains in its box because the dust has been “thick enough to chew,” Rhonda Johnson said.
Johnson said she hasn’t been able to open her windows or spend much time in her backyard because of the blowing dust.
“It’s difficult for us to enjoy our home while they’re doing that,” she said, pointing across the street.
Grand Haven Area Public Schools Superintendent Keith Konarska said many of the baseball fields are used by the North Ottawa Recreation Authority, and they have asked to do improvements on the Griffin field, which is on the corner of Robbins Road and Hopkins Street. The improvements include putting in irrigation and re-seeding the field.
Konarska said the project should be completed in a few weeks.
“We certainly apologize for the current dust, but are confident that the finished product will be appreciated by all," he said.
