Introduction

The Recreational Authority is embarking on a public visioning process to better understand how the Authority can serve the future needs and desires of Township and City residents. Please take a moment to complete this short survey by September 21st so we can understand how you use the existing recreational authority properties and how the Authority can best respond to future recreational needs in our community.

Background: The City of Traverse City and Charter Township of Garfield Recreational Authority was formed in 2003 under Michigan’s Recreational Authorities Act. In 2004, voters in overwhelmingly approved a bond request to allow the Authority to acquire and preserve three private properties for use as public parks. Over the past 14 years, the Authority has accomplished much of what it originally set out to do, but the opportunity for continual improvements to better serve the public remains. Furthermore, beside its regular monthly public board meetings, the Authority has not conducted a large, concentrated public input effort since 2007.
