Mason County Rec Plan on Track

The Draft Recreation Plan for Mason County has moved one step closer to recommendation for approval.

The Mason County Parks and Recreation Board met Monday night in Scottville. The meeting was open to the public, and four interested persons attended, in addition to Alan Bean who represented Spicer Group. Spicer is the consulting firm which has drawn up the draft plan.

Bean gave a short report on the plan pointing out that having a master plan qualifies the county to apply for Natural Resources Trust Fund grants, and Land and Water Conservation Fund grants. Such a plan also makes it easier for government units to plan budgets and set priorities.

Comments from guests were accepted. Kirk Myers, representing the Mason County Fairgrouds thanked the board for including the Fairgrounds in the master plan. Ed McCumber noted that the Mason County Campground is on track to open at the end of May. Joan Young attended, representing the interests of the North Country Trail.

With some minor corrections, the plan was accepted, and will be formally presented to be recommended for approval at the next meeting of the Mason County Board of Commissioners on February 12, 2008.

In other business, the Commission elected officers for 2008. Chairman is Michael Schneider, Vice-Chairman- Tom Organ, Secretary- David Hasenbank.
