Notice of Availability of Proposed Recreation Plan & Notice of Public Hearing

Notice is Hereby Given that a copy of the proposed City of East Jordan Recreation Plan 2018-2023 will be available for inspection by all interested parties at the East Jordan City Hall starting January 30th, 2018. East Jordan City Hall is located at 201 Main Street, East Jordan, Michigan 49727.

Notice is Hereby Given that a public hearing will be held by the City of East Jordan City Commissioners on Wednesday, February 28th, 2018 at 5:15 p.m. at the East Jordan City Hall.  The hearing is intended to provide an opportunity for interested citizens to express their opinions regarding the aspects of the proposed Recreation Plan.  After the public hearing, the City Commissioners will consider a resolution to recommend adoption of the Recreation Plan.

A Recreation Plan assists the City in identifying recreation needs within the community. The plan will serve as a guide for maintaining, improving and expanding facilities.  While a Recreation Plan assists the community in determining its goals and needs, if approved by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR), it also qualifies the community for recreation grants which are administered through the MDNR Grants Administration Section.  The proposed Recreation Plan includes a community description, an overview of the administrative structure of the City, an inventory of existing facilities, a basis for action and recommended goals, guidelines and capital improvements for the next five years.
