You are invited to attend a
community conversation to discuss future parks and recreation funding
when two park millages expire on June 30, 2007. With the two park
millages expiring, Park Advisory Commissioners and City staff would like
to receive community input on several funding options. These options were
developed as a result of public input collected via e-mail and during 13
public and focus group meetings held throughout March. Members of the
community are encouraged to provide feedback on four funding options that
will be presented at public meetings. These funding options are designed
to address the future operational needs of the City's parks and
In November 2000, the Park
Rehabilitation and Development Millage was approved by Ann Arbor voters.
The six-year tax millage of .4725 mils (reduced by the required millage
reduction to .4701 mils) funded the City's park and recreation capital
improvement programs from July 2001 through June 2007. The capital
improvements focused on four park and recreation service areas
(recreation facility rehabilitation and improvements; city-wide
neighborhood park rehabilitation and improvements; active park
improvements including bicycle facilities, pathways, and trail linkages;
and natural parks and historic preservation).
In November 2002, residents of Ann Arbor also approved a four-year
millage of .4725 mils (reduced by the required millage reduction to .4632
mil) for park repair and restoration for natural area preservation,
forestry and horticulture in parks, and non-routine repair and
restoration activities for the park system infrastructure.
