Erie Township Community Recreation Plan Community Planning Workshop

On January 3, 2018, Erie Township will host a community planning workshop to consider potential projects to be included in an updated 5-year Recreation Plan.  This workshop will be held at the Erie Township Hall at 7:30 PM.  The Erie Township Parks Commission has been working toward developing an updated Recreation Plan for several months.   A 5-year Recreation Plan is necessary to maintain eligibility for grants available from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.  The existing plan was adopted in early 2013 and will soon expire.

The workshop will include discussions about the need to update goals and objectives, along with the need to update the action plan that identifies projects and potential improvements to the local recreation system.  All residents are invited to attend this workshop and contribute thoughts and ideas about how existing recreation facilities can be further developed to meet changing needs, or how new facilities can be provided to meet new needs.   This workshop will be collaborative in nature and fresh and creative ideas are welcome.  

After this workshop, the Recreation Commission will meet again on January 10th to finalize a first draft of an updated Recreation Plan.  The draft plan will be made available for additional public comment soon after, and then will formally be considered by the Erie Township Trustees in February.

Attention Erie Residents

Issuing of Burn Permits:  Effective immediately, all residents will be required to have the burn permit in their posession prior to burning.  You may acquire a burn permit for Erie Fire Dept. either by coming to the township hall to get one, or if you have e-mail or a fax machine, you may call and get one over the phone.  If none of these options work for you we also have a resident pick-up box by the front door or we can mail the permit to you.  For Morin Point Fire Dept. burn permits will be issued by the fire dept. by calling 734-848-8942, leave a message and they will return your call.
