Developers seek to donate 50-acre parkland to Pittsfield Township
The developers of Centennial Park and Centennial Farms in Pittsfield Township are seeking to donate nearly 50 acres of park land to the township.
Wexford-Centennial VI, along with another company, informed Township Supervisor Mandy Grewal that it wants to donate the land known as the Centennial Commons.
Craig Welch, a representative for Wexford, wrote that the developers have spent more than $100,000 on improvements to courts, fields, playground equipment and parking facilities, which will also be included in the transfer.
The land is located along the southern portion of Textile Road between State Road and Lohr Road.
"We have discussed this donation with the homeowner boards of both the Park and the Farms," Welch wrote. "They were both wholly supportive. In addition, they have surveyed their owners and they too responded with overwhelming support."
The original park covenants allow the developers to reserve the right to grant the parklands to the township for use as a public park for the use by all township residents.
If approved by the board of trustees, the supervisor and clerk are authorized to negotiate and approve any necessary agreements and documents at a cost not to exceed $50,000, according to the documents.
The trustees will vote on the transfer agreement at 6:30 p.m., Wednesday during their next meeting at the Pittsfield Township Administration Building located at 6201 W. Michigan Ave.
