Amenities of the park as discussed in the meeting, included pickle ball courts, a pavilion and more.
The the only action item on the agenda that was discussed was the acceptance of the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Grant Agreement. This is the first step in allowing for an all accessible pavilion area to be built at the Harris Nature Center.
