Muskegon Township residents are being given the opportunity to provide input to the planners as to the kinds of recreation facilities they desire.
There will be an open forum, Monday evening, Jan 14, at 7pm in the Muskegon Township Hall (corner of Apple Avenue and Quarterline Road). Planning commissioners will discuss the future of Muskegon Township's parks and recreation. There is time set aside for public comment. Planning Commission Chairman Joseph R. Singerling said that they want to move forward by "first, identifying areas the public sees a need; and second, paying for it. ... creative ways we can better spend the money. You sometimes have to think out of the box."
All municipalities must update their master plan for parks and recreation every five years in order to be eligible for state recreation grants. Muskegon needs to renew its plan in 2008.
They expect to collect ideas during the next few months and then present a draft plan to board of trustees this summer.
