Township Answers Questions About Community Center Proposal

Plainfield Community Center - Exterior Concept (website)

The Nov. 2 ballot will include a millage proposal to finance the construction of a new Community Center.

As Election Day draws near, here are answers to some frequently asked questions about the project.

Can the new Community Center be built where the existing Community Center is located?

The existing site for the Community Center on Grand River Drive does not have the space that is necessary for the construction of the new building as well as the necessary parking to accommodate visitors to the facility.

Will non-residents pay more for programming at the Community Center?

Programming fees and rates are established by the programs that operate within the Community Center. For example, the Northview Senior Citizens program sets its own rates and fees for programming. It is expected that room rentals will have a resident and non-resident fee structure. Fees will be established following voter consideration and as the facility operations and programming are further developed.

Will all Plainfield Township voters be able to vote on this ballot question?

Yes, the Community Center will serve the entire Township.

Is the Northview Senior Program limited to seniors that live in the Northview Public Schools District?

No, the Senior Citizens Program is open to anyone. The program is named Northview because of the partnership between Northview Public Schools to support senior citizens programming.
