A proposed $250,000 modification to Wonch Park would add a new octagonal-shaped pavilion with two new grills, three handicapped-accessible picnic tables, four shade trees, water and electricity. Meridian Township officials unanimously supported the submission of a $187,500 grant application to the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund Program at the Park Commission meeting March 11. Board members agreed to provide $62,500, funded by the Meridian Township general fund for the proposed Wonch Park Pavilion Replacement Project. The deadline for applying for the grant is April 1. Trust fund grants are awarded in December.
