Resident proposes alternate plan for Mich-e-ke-wis Park

Alpena-Joe Rybarczyk was one of many residents who disapproved of an RV park coming to Mich-e-ke-wis.

His plans centers around beautification, accessibility, and public exposure. Some of the proposed additions to the park include a handicap accessible boardwalk, a pier with canoe/kayak parking, a community garden, a food truck circle, solar panel benches for charging, outdoor fitness, upgraded playgrounds, and a public gathering area.

The Alpena resident doesn’t expect everything to be accomplished at once. Rybarczyk hopes the community can find a goal for the park, go after it, and accomplish it. You can check out Joe’s full plan at
