Notice of Cancellation: The Recreation Committee meeting scheduled for Monday, April 16th has been cancelled.
March 26, 2018 We would like to update everyone on the progress of the purchase and development of the May Buell Park at the corner of Lakeside Avenue and Butwell Road. Our forty-year title search and environmental evaluation have been completed and approved by the DNR and we are currently waiting for the appraisal to be completed. Upon completion, and approval, we can set up the closing to purchase the parcel. After closing we would remove the small cabin from the lakeside of the parcel. In the meantime, we are working with Alliance for Economic Success in Manistee to apply for a grant to develop the parcel. The tentative site plan is available under projects on our website. We held a public meeting in July of 2017 to discuss the site and have recently held a public hearing to allow us to apply for the grant. Our plan has parking places, a handicap accessible bathroom, picnic table, garbage and recycling cans, a rain garden, handicap access to the beach area, and fencing around the parking area. We will have a designated crosswalk and buoys around the swim area. Hopefully we will receive this grant so we can move ahead promptly with the development. The Recreation Committee also updated the maintenance plan to align with the site plan. The Committee is currently working on the park rules ordinance. ~Pleasanton Township Board
The Sewer Collaborative Meetings for the months of March and April are cancelled. A letter from the USDARD stating that all of the needed information for the grant has been received but it will be 4-6 months before we will hear back from them.
