The City of New Buffalo, New Buffalo Township and New Buffalo Area Schools each own and operate recreational facilities. Furthermore, these entities recognize they have a mutual interest in recreational facilities and in the potential of recreational facilities that may be acquired or developed in the future to serve the greater New Buffalo community.
As a result of these shared benefits, the parties wish to provide for collaboration and joint oversight of existing facilities as well as possible cooperative efforts in other recreational endeavors as their respective governing bodies might subsequently approve. To this end, the parties deem it in the best interests of their constituents to establish a recreational authority and to provide for its funding, operation and maintenance.
The NBARA has been established to acquire, construct, operate, maintain and improve public swimming pools, public recreation centers, public auditoriums, and public parks within the jurisdictional limits of the participants.
Meetings are held at New Buffalo Township Hall January 12, 2023, and the 2nd Wednesday of March, May, July, September, and November at 10:00 a.m.
