Recreation creation survey for plan update

Cannon Township Trail

Cannon Township is currently working on an update to its five-year Recreation Plan. As part of that process, they are looking for input from the residents. You will find the survey on the Cannon Township website at www.cannontwp.org. There is a link to the survey under “Breaking News” on the homepage.

Over the past ten years, Cannon has been working on the creation of a trail system throughout the Township. The original 4-mile stretch was opened in 2007 and a few smaller segments have been added since then. An extension from Townsend Park into Cannonsburg should be completed at the end of this summer.

Many of these trails have been funded with grant dollars with match being provided by the Recreation Fund. This Fund was established with millage income that was first approved by voters in 2002 and has been successfully renewed ever since.

In addition to trail construction, Cannon Township has recently built a park on the Township Center grounds. It provides a play structure geared for preschoolers, a picnic shelter, an open play field, and a small trail that winds through a wetland area. Restrooms are located nearby.

Cannon is hoping that its residents respond to the survey to help the officials make decisions regarding future projects. Please take a few minutes to complete it. If you prefer, hard copies are available in the Township Center Lobby.
