Canton Leisure Services is currently seeking community input as a key part of the strategic process of updating its Master Plan, which will be utilized by Canton Township to guide decisions for future planning of programs, services, and amenities, as well as enhancements to existing facilities.
Canton residents are invited to provide input at a series of Open Houses conducted by McKenna, a community planning, design, and building services firm based in Northville, MI, that will be held in June and August 2021, as a key part of the strategic process of updating Canton Leisure Services Five Year Master Plan, which was previously adopted in 2016.
Members of the community are invited to submit feedback on: Sunday, June 6, from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. at the Canton Farmers Market, located at 500 N. Ridge Road; Thursday, June 17, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Thursday Night LIVE Concert, located behind 1150 S. Canton Center Road; Thursday, August 5, from 6:30-8:00 p.m. at the Thursday Night LIVE Concert in Heritage Park, located behind 1150 S. Canton Center Road; and Sunday, August 8, from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. at the Canton Farmers Market located at 500 N. Ridge Road. Members of the community are also invited to submit comments via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The revised Master Plan will ultimately serve as a guide in planning for the preservation, acquisition, and development of Leisure Services facilities, programs, and services over the next five years. The development of this new master plan will ensure that Leisure Services continues to be a leader in the leisure industry.
“Canton residents and business owners now have a chance to direct where we’re headed and help determine what our future plans are,” stated Jeanette Aiello, Business Operations Coordinator. “These individuals have a unique opportunity to identify key recreational amenities, programs, services, and facilities that will help make our community an even better place to live.”
Once through with this initial input process, Canton Leisure Services will develop a draft plan and will make it available for public review and comment later this fall of 2021.
Residents and all interested parties are encouraged to help Canton Leisure Services continue its success by joining in this Master Plan updating process. For more information about the Canton Leisure Services Master Plan project, visit www.cantonfun.org or call 734/394-5360.
