Camp seagull public hearing on March 5 in Hayes Township

Hayes Township will hold a public hearing on Thursday March 5 at 7 p.m. at the Hayes Township Hall, 09195 Old US-31 North.

The purpose of the hearing is to discuss the 2015 Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) grant application for improvement of HayesTownship Park Camp Sea-Gull. Camp Sea-Gull was acquired early last year through MNRTF acquisition grant monies, township funds and public donations.
The grant application will ask for funds for the first phase of development: road infrastructure to the lakefront and a launch facility for small boats.

The public is welcome and encouraged to come and participate.

“The boat launch and the access road are an important first step,” said Hayes Township Parks Committee Member Anne Kantola… “It will create the foundation for making the park a fun, usable place. It’ll get people down to the beach area and into the lake, and will create the ‘bones’ for enhancing the park’s utility in the future.”

The Hayes Township Master Plan poses many possibilities for future park elements, including non-motorized trail head, swimming beaches, overlook and nature trails, a fishing pier, refurbished recreational hall and cabins, recreational areas and spaces for family and social gatherings.

With the assistance of an anonymous donation, the township hired a professional team, Landscape Architects and Planners, Inc., to navigate the complex public process and create a balanced plan that allows for many possibilities for the future development and use of the park, while preserving its natural character.

The Master Plan may be found on the Hayes Township website:
In addition, Hayes Township is seeking a person or couple to serve as Park Host, living on site at Hayes Township Park Camp Sea-Gull during the late spring, summer and early fall of 2015 in exchange for light grounds and cabin maintenance, and public interface.

If interested, please contact Marlene Golovich, Hayes Township Clerk, or 231-547-6961.
