Written by Jesse Baroka on July 12, 2019
WAKEFIED TOWNSHIP – Wakefield Township residents may get a knock on their doors as door-to-door survey are underway to get what Wakefield Township residents think the best way for the township to move forward. Yesterday was their first day survey takers started going door to door, according to township supervisor John Cox. Cox said that township board members began with a template from the Western Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Region, based in Hancock, and then modified that to meet local survey needs. The township hired WUPPDR to prepare its master plan. Wakefield Township residents are also welcome to comment on any of the township’s contracts with the Wakefield Public Library, Lakeside Cemetery, and Wakefield parks also to share opinions on potential development. Like solar power, mining, and whether a potential casino is regarded as a strength or a weakness. The door to door surveys will take place through the rest of the month. Once all surveys are in at the end of July, the township board then will review the results before WUPPDR processes them in preparation for the new master plan, which is expected to be complete in about a year.
