Land acquisition by DNR in Manchester, Norvell townships recommended by Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund

The list of recommendations by the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund was tweeted this evening by the DNR, and the purchase of the Trolz family farm is listed.

Here's the tweet announcing all the recommendations statewide, which includes six projects in Washtenaw County:

The recommendation of the acquisition, which is being called the River Raisin Recreation Area, is to cost $3 million on the area, which is "to focus on hunting, fishing and outdoor recreation."

The move was the next step in the land acquisition, the DNR told The Enterprise in September. The next step is to send the recommendation to the state legislature, a process that could go well into next year.

Other projects on the recommendation list in the county include:

Washtenaw County
  • $2.275 million to connect to urban nature preserves
Ann Arbor
  • $300,000 to Gallup Park for several improvements, including energy improvements and better access to buildings
  • $300,000 to help fund the in-ground skate park at Veterans Memorial Park
Ypsilanti Township
  • $300,000 to renovate Rutherford Pool
  • $289,400 for developing the Heritage Bridge over Michigan Avenue and a fishing pier
