Townships Join Up To Study Recreational Facilities
GLR News Update
Marquette, MI – (Great Lakes Radio News) – Three local governments are investigating options for multi-jurisdictional cooperation on recreational services and facilities.
A planned feasibility study will determine if and how the City of Marquette, Marquette Charter Township and Chocolay Township can better work together to address community-wide recreational needs.
The study will also determine options for the set up a formal body that will both raise funds and provide for the operation, maintenance and management of existing recreational facilities.
While the study will examine the future of each jurisdiction’s recreation facilities, special attention will be devoted to the future of the Heartwood Forestland property.
The study is being overseen by an Ad Hoc Committee of representatives from each of the three jurisdictions.
The study will include a public meeting at which citizens will be asked to comment on some of the proposed options for cooperation.
