Notice of Public Viewing Of the Fremont Area Parks &Recreation 5-Yr Master Plan
Notice is hereby given that the Fremont Area Parks & Recreation Master Plan is being updated and available for review for the 30-day period of December 20, 2019 to January 20, 2020.
THE ADVISORY COMMITTEE WILL BE MEETING WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 15, 2020 AT 6:00 PM AT THE CITY OF FREMONT MUNICIPAL OFFICES.
The local government jurisdictions of the City of Fremont, Dayton Township and Sheridan Charter Township joined together to develop and adopt the first Fremont Area 5-Year Parks & Recreation Master Plan in 2001, and have since updated it several times. It was envisioned that creating an area-wide joint Recreation Plan would enable the community to provide recreational opportunities to their residents in the most efficient, effective and fiscally responsible manner.
The current 5-yr Recreation Plan has expired, so an advisory committee has started the renewal process and each of the three participating jurisdictions will hold public hearings after the 30-day public review process to receive input on the proposed updated Plan. Following each Public Hearing, each jurisdiction will then consider final adoption of the updated recreation plan and recommend its adoption to the other participating local government jurisdictions.
The hearings are intended to provide an opportunity for residents of the City of Fremont, Dayton Township and Sheridan Charter Township to provide input, express their opinions, ask questions, and discuss the aspects of the proposed updates regarding recreation in the Fremont community. For those unable to attend the meetings, a Draft 5-yr Plan is available for viewing on the City of Fremont’s website www.cityoffremont.net and at each of the participating jurisdiction’s offices. Please send written comments to the attention of Todd Blake, Fremont City Manager / Coordinator of Fremont Area Park & Recreation Plan Advisory Committee, 101 E. Main, Fremont, Michigan 49412, by no later than noon on Monday, January 20, 2020. The Public Hearing’s for each jurisdictionare scheduled as follows:
