Parks & Recreation

 

Have you heard that Pierson Township is in the process of acquiring land behind the township hall for Pierson Township to have Park & Recreation opportunities.

The land survey has been done and we are ready to start planning and fundraising for a Pierson Township Park!  One condition of  the donation is that the Park will be fenced off from adjoining land. So the 2022 timeline will include a fence and excavating!

 

We will have almost 5 acres of land to work with a "Dream Team" based on surveys and ideas in the Recreation plan. 

Support the Pierson Township Parks & Recreation

 * Pop Cans for Parks - Drop off cans & bottles for returnable donation!  Clean trash toters area available for easy drop off!

 * Paint for Parks! Two painting events to join in for the fun and support P&R! Thurs, Dec 2 at 6:30 pm and January 20, 2022. Each event is $30 donation to P&R and covers canvas, paint and instruction with Crystal Cunningham with Refabulous Studios

Assessor.jpg

To all Pierson Property owners;

 

A state requirement is to periodically update

pictures of all property parcels. 

We are taking an aggressive approach to

meet this state requirement by the end of the year.  Either our Assessor or his assistant will be performing this task.  They will carry identification of being a Pierson official and/ or their vehicle will also be marked as such.  Should you see anyone on your property taking pictures and are concerned, please ask for identification and it will be provided promptly.  

 

We thank you in advance for your cooperation in meeting this state requirement. 

 

Sincerely,

Pierson Township Assessing Team

We would like to put further clarity into our initiative to update pictures of property within Pierson Township by answering some common questions;

 

  1. What are the requirements?  The State of Michigan requires that all townships maintain a record of every structure within the township.  The standard for parcel inspection is a minimum of once every 5 years. Our hope is that we might come into compliance by the spring of 2022.   We respect your privacy and will do our best to accommodate your request for an appointment. 

  2. Isn’t this trespassing?  No, one is not trespassing when they are on property for the sole purpose of performing a required function.  No more is an electric or gas employee trespassing when they go on your property to read a meter.

  3. Is this an effort to increase taxes?  No, there are specific state rules and formulas that taxes are based off of.

  4. Can we provide our own pictures?  Yes, it would be a huge help!  If you would like to assist us by photographing and submitting pictures yourself, please send a picture of the front and back of your home plus one photo each of any additional buildings. If the property is vacant, a picture indicating such will also be needed. Please email to: assessor@piersontwp.org.  If you would prefer to visit me personally, I will be in the township office on Tuesdays from 9:00 – 2:00. 

 Sincerely, Carl S. Schuitema, Pierson Township Assessor
