Given the declining condition of both the dam and pond, the Township established a committee to investigate options for the future of Mill Pond Park in two scenarios: 1) Maintain the dam and improve the pond, and 2) Remove the dam and restore the Shiawassee River corridor. The Committee began an investigation in October 2017 and presented its Report and Initial Recommendations to a Joint Meeting of the Township Board and Park Commission on April 10, 2018. In this report, the Committee offered some initial recommendations but suggested that expertise of engineers and hydrologists is required to evaluate options for dam modification or removal.  See links below for more information
