Over the past year, the Recreation Authority has initiated a number of initiatives in support of a multi-jurisdictional recreation improvement program. However, in the summer of 2007, Everett Township officially withdrew from the Recreation Authority. In response, the three remaining jurisdictions adopted revised Articles of Incorporation. At the same time, the Recreation Authority began to pursue a number of grant opportunities to help fund park improvements and the development of additional non-motorized trails including an ADA accessible Riverside Pedestrian Pathway that would connect a new mixed-use development to the City of Newaygo's Business District along the Muskegon River.
Due to these very positive developments, the Recreation Authority took official steps to amend the Newaygo Community Recreation and Natural Resources Plan. The amendments highlight new efforts to coordinate and guide future efforts and investments that will provide: improved recreational facilities, greater access to nature-based recreation and more effective programming for the citizens of the Newaygo Community and their guests.
