Fenton Holding Vision Session Tonight; Council Hoping for Large Turnout

Purpose is to gather input from community on what they'd like Fenton's future to look like, city manager says.

What should Fenton’s future look like?

Fenton city officials and administrators are hoping for many participants at Wednesday’s vision session, 6 p.m. Dec. 5 in the Andrew G. Schmidt Middle School cafeteria, 3255 Donaldson Dr., in Fenton.

The vision session is to gather information on what the community would like to see in Fenton in the future, said City Manager Lynn Markland. City council members will help lead brainstorming sessions of groups of people, gathering input for the full council to review and use in a strategic goal setting plan for Fenton.

AGS Middle School’s cafeteria can hold at least 75 to 100 people or more, Markland added. Dinner and child care will be provided.

“We are hoping for a large turnout,” he said. “We’ve been planning it for a few months now.”

Dr. Lou Bender is helping council with the process, Mayor Sue Osborn said at Monday’s council worksession. As of Monday night, 105 people had said they would attend the vision session.

“We really want to know what the public thinks,” Markland said. “We want their ideas.”

Continued road improvements. Our out of town family and friends laugh at the terrible condition of the area roads. I would like to see considerations for bike/walking/running trails. When visiting communities around the country the most attractive ones have those amenities. Fenton cannot rely solely on the beautiful lakes.

That whole Tops mess needs to be a city park with an up to date play structure for our children and a boardwalk along the water for our seniors. Fenton needs to be more walkable. We all need exercise! We need a better library/media building.
