Scottville Proposing Major Recreation Projects

A public hearing is scheduled for Monday evening, January 21, to consider amending the Master Recreation Plan for the City of Scottville, Michigan. Several exciting recreation possibilities will be considered, and the City Commissioners would be glad to receive feedback from interested persons concerning the ideas.

On the agenda will be:
  • the possible purchase of Henry's Landing. This property is on the Pere Marquette River, across Scottville Road from Scottville Riverside Park. The property has been for sale for some time, and could be a major expansion of the park.
  • possible development of the closed Mason County Landfill property as a recreation venue. This 135-acre property is located southwest of the city along First Street, also bordering the river.
  • other improvements to Riverside Park and MacPhail Field. Last year the city purchased a playground which has been installed at MacPhail Field.
In order to qualify for Michigan Recreation Trust Fund grants, projects must be included in local recreation plans. Since the Scottville Plan is not up for renewal until 2009, these amendments to the current plan would need to be adopted before that date.

The public hearing is first on the agenda for the Scottville commission meeting Monday night at 7:30. Meetings are held at Scottville City Hall, North Main Street.

Commissioners will vote on the ammendment following the public hearing.
