Already home to traditional parks, Macomb Township may include linear parks that incorporate access to waterways in the community.
Those type of meandering trails running through residential areas are among on the possibilities for the township's master plan. Ideally, the paths could include access to the Clinton River by canoe or kayak. The master plans are updated every five years to coincide with the community's vision and economic factors, Clerk Michael Koehs said.
"This will lead to a series of public meetings where we certainly encourage the public to get involved," Koehs said.
The meeting dates have not been set at this time.
Township officials said they believe the community is gradually rebounding from the building downturn.
"We're thinking things are looking up," he said.
The township had 32 new residential building permits issued in January this year. There were 514 issued last year alone, according to township Supervisor Janet Dunn.
"They seem to be pretty well scattered so it's very encouraging right now," Dunn said of the new houses going up in various areas of the township.
