Parks and Recreation Master Plan
We want to hear from you 7 p.m. Wednesday, May 26, as we take in public input for the five-year Livonia Parks and Recreation Master Plan for 2022-26. We received thousands of great survey responses in February, but want to provide a more vocal avenue for those who live in the community, participate in our programs, or have used our parks or facilities. It'll help us evaluate what we currently have and then create actionable goals for improving our park system and recreation programs over the next several years. Join us virtually via Zoom May 26 or using the meeting ID of 892 5181 9843 and passcode of 988180.
The Livonia Parks and Recreation Department is proud to offer Livonia youth, ages 17 and younger, a scholarship program to make recreation programs and activities affordable for as many youths as possible. As of Nov. 30, we are accepting applications for 2021.
The scholarship, funded by St. Mary Mercy Livonia through the Healthy Livonia initiative, is designed to assist Livonia families financially by subsidizing the cost of programs up to a maximum of $300 per child, per year; on a first-come, first-serve basis. The Livonia Parks and Recreation will cover 85% of the program fee and the parent/guardian will be responsible for 15% of the fee per approved program. Funds available based upon donations and sponsorship of the program. This scholarship is another example of community partners breaking down barriers for youth participation in exercise, enrichment and activities.
