The Mott Park Golf Course closed in 2010. The building has received little investment since then. The roof is in bad shape. It needs a whole new HVAC system. About 15 windows were broken by local youth. We have received a grant for $25,000 and will be working on the roof, windows, and HVAC system. Thanks to Cody Leppek for getting the bathrooms functioning and the water on.
The City of Flint has agreed to lease the building to the Mott Park Recreation Association in order to turn it into a community center. The city will cover some of the utility costs so that we can focus our fundraising on the bigger issues.
The grand opening will be in 2022. If anyone would like to volunteer to help with painting, cleaning, landscaping, plumbing, decorating, etc., or if you have questions regarding renting the building, contact Chad Schlosser at firstname.lastname@example.org.
