Parks & Recreation Committee & Networks Northwest Meeting

Sunset Station Dune Grass Replenishing
Help Us Plant 2000 Dune Grass Plants
The Arcadia Township Board through the new Parks and Recreation Committee, has arranged to have a path excavated at Sunset Station. The path will give the community temporary access to the beach and Lake Michigan. This is part of a longer-term plan to remove damaged existing facilities and with community input rethink the future of the park.
The excavation is going to damage some of the existing dune grass. To ensure that the area is stabilized, the plan is to plant new dune grass in the area of the excavation. To accomplish this, we are looking for volunteers. We have 2000 plants to put in the ground. Many hands make light work.
Please come and help out, bring a small gardening shovel and as many of your family and friends as you can.
SURVEY (5 minute commitment)
Manistee County-Wide Park & Recreation Plan
Manistee County and all of the jurisdictions therein are updating their 5-year parks and recreation plan and we want to hear from you. This plan will help guide the community's parks and recreation projects and programming, but it will only be a success if we know what the residents and visitors want.
The Parks and Recreation Committee Seeking Proposals
On behalf of the Arcadia Township Board of Trustees, the Arcadia Township Parks & Recreation Committee is seeking bids for two projects to provide improved access to the beach at the end of Lake Street. The first is for a short-term project to excavate a sloping path leading from the parking area to the beach at the water level. This RFP document which was published on March 16th can be found here.
The second project has a longer-term goal. With this RFP, we are seeking proposals from engineering firms to present qualifications for their services to produce conceptual drawings and construction cost estimates. This project would include ADA compliant permanent access for the Arcadia Beach Natural Area and the Sunset Station at the west end of Lake Street in Arcadia Township. This RFP published on March 19th can be found here.
