Chime in March 31 on Farmington parks master plan

Farmington area residents have an opportunity on March 31 to learn more about the proposed Rouge River Corridor Project and chime in on the city’s five-year Recreation Master Plan.

Held at the Farmington High School Media Center, the evening begins with a 6 p.m. presentation about a joint planning effort between the cities of Farmington and Farmington Hills Corridor Improvement Authorities to create a comprehensive plan for revitalizing the Rouge River Corridor. Key efforts include a site design for a non-motorized pathway, as well as implementation strategies, funding opportunities and ideas on how the river can be used to support new economic development opportunities.

Between 7 p.m. and 9 p.m., residents will provide comment during the Master Plan open house. The meetings are part of a series of steps the city must take in order to be eligible for Michigan’s Department of Natural Resources grant funding. The existing recreation plan from 2005 will be updated to be more engaging and readable, to reflect changes in the community and create strategies to implement goals as envisioned by the public.

Residents who are unable to attend may participate in an online survey, survey, through the end of March.

To learn more, contact Economic and Community Development Director Kevin Christiansen, or 248-474-5500.
