My Town Sparta: Public hearing March 31 for park development funding

ALGOMA TOWNSHIP, Mich.—Community members are encouraged to weigh in on plans to develop a new park east of the Rogue River.

Using funding from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources, Algoma Township purchased a piece of property at 10371 Edgerton Ave., north of 12 Mile Road and named it Rivers Edge Park.   A new driveway has already been constructed on the property.Township Supervisor Dennis Hoemke says the township is now looking at how to develop the park into a natural space for the community, padding handicap accessible walkways and a couple of overlook sites for fishing the Rogue River.  Hoemke says the land is primarily wetland, so it will largely remain a nature preserve. 

A public hearing to discuss a grant application for developing the park will take place Tuesday, March 31 at 10 a.m. People who cannot make it to the hearing can submit written comments during regular business hours at the Township offices, located at 10531 Algoma Ave.
