Calendar of events
The building currently
houses tenants such as the
Michigan Philharmonic, Tony
Roko's Art Foundation and
others to help defray costs.
The College for Creative
Studies also offers extensive
coursework at PARC.
Soenen added that despite
opposition claims, no taxes
will be assessed for the proj-
ect without voter approval.
Former Plymouth Township
Clerk Nancy Conzelman,
soundly defeated in the last
municipal election, is voicing
Soenen, responding May
31 to a Facebook post by
Conzelman, said, “I've tried
not to engage in some of the
dialog on this and other sites
regarding PARC, but some of
the recent misinformation
needs to be corrected. Nancy
Conzelman recently posted
information that is incorrect
(Plymouth Area Recreation
Authority). It's important that
citizens be properly informed.
1) The cost of the project is
approximately $16.0 mil for
the purchase of the property,
infrastucture and renovation
of the school facility.
Approximately $14.0 mil will
be allocated to the building of
the performing arts center. Of
the total of $30 million,
approximately $6 million has
been raised in private dona-
tions, much of it dedicated to
the performing arts center.
2) While the Recreation
Authorities Act 2000 PA 321
has provisions in the statute
that go beyond the scope of
this project, the PARA
Articles of Incorporation
specifically limit the taxing
authority of PARA to .75 mill
for 20 years. The articles
could only be revised by a
majority vote of the city com-
missioners and the township
trustees to increase taxes;
then it would also require the
approval by city and township
voters. The PARA board can-
not raise our taxes without
this rigorous approval
process. They CANNOT issue
other bonds, borrow money,
issue unlimited general obli-
gation bonds, etc. contrary to
what Nancy Conzelman has
3) Themillage electionwill
be Nov. 6, 2018, I hope this
clears up some of the mis-
information,” Soenen con-
cluded in his Facebook
response to opposing claims.
It was a post on Facebook
attributed to Conzelman May
30 that prompted Soenen;s
