DNR Seeks Input on Bear Creek Access Site at Open House October 10

The Department of Natural Resources' Parks and Recreation Division will host a public open house on Wednesday, Oct. 10, from 7 to 8 p.m., at the Big Bear Sportsmans Club, located at 1614 9 Mile Road, in Kaleva, Michigan. The open house will offer the public an opportunity to provide input and suggestions on the development of the Bear Creek access site off 9 Mile Road, west of the village of Kaleva in Manistee County.


The DNR wants to gather input on future development of the site, including suggestions on a possible boat launch and parking area. Proposed improvements may include barrier-free enhancements, design of the parking area and future site improvements. DNR Parks and Recreation staff and a DNR Fisheries biologist will be on hand to field questions and comments.


Anyone needing accommodations to attend the open house or seeking details or updates about the open house should contact Melinda Eberbach, unit supervisor at Orchard Beach State Park and Tippy Dam Recreation Area, at 231-723-7422 at least five business days prior to the meeting.

Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
