Keeping you updated on Lakeshore Park plans
The Novi Planning Commission unanimously approved the Lakeshore Park project on March 27 with a directive to City staff to work with the neighboring residents on landscape screening. The project will now go out to bid and return to City Council to award a construction contract.

The 6,200-square-foot building was designed for Novi Parks & Novi Public Library programming. It is to be located on the approximate site as the existing building and plans call for an enhanced parking lot, new park shelter and playground. After meeting with Library kiosk vendors, it was best determined to relocate this amenity adjacent to the parking lot, not attached to the building, for ease of access and use.

The park will remain open until a contractor is selected but the beach will be closed for the year. City staff will work with the contractor on a plan to provide access to the mountain bike and hiking trails. Additional updates will be posted here and shared through the City’s social media outlets. Frequently asked questions can also be bound on cityofnovi.org at the Lakeshore Page found here. Thank you to all of our residents for their input and continued support of our Novi.
