Parks and Recreation Advisory Board meeting -April 22

The City of Marquette Parks and Recreation Advisory Board’s April meeting will take place Monday, April 22. The meeting, which will begin at 6 p.m. in the Citizens Forum at Lakeview Arena, was originally scheduled for April 15, but had to be canceled due to a lack of quorum.


Household Rubbish and Compost site opening

Extra days have been added to the first two weeks to assist in spring cleaning. The site is open from 3 to 7 p.m. (or when capacity is met) on April 22, 23, 24, 25, 29, and 30, as well as May 1 and 2.

The City of Marquette’s Household Rubbish and Compost site will open April 22.

The Household Rubbish site, located at 1415 Pioneer Road, is a site for City residents paying the “solid waste” fee to dispose of household items too large for curbside pickup. The daily capacity of this site is regulated by the MDEQ and once capacity is met, the site will close, without exception.

The site is opening Monday, April 22 and will be open Mondays and Wednesdays from 3 to 7 p.m., as well as on the second Saturday of each month from 1 to 4 p.m. Again, the site may close early on any day if capacity is met.

Regular hours will begin May 6.

The Compost site, also located at 1415 Pioneer Road, is opening Tuesday, May 4 and will be open each Tuesday from 3 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Residents must bring a photo ID and a current City water bill showing a “solid waste” fee payment to enter both sites.

Have you ever wondered why the lakeshore in Marquette's Lower Harbor is so open to public use today compared to years past? Brownfield projects, in coordination with the City of Marquette, the State of Michigan and private developers, have had a transformative effect on lakeshore access and recreation opportunities.

The harbor was was once the home to multiple working ore docks, piles of coal, fuel tanks and industrial refuse. Now, thanks to years of work remediating environmental contamination, creating new public spaces, and developing brownfield sites, Lower Harbor is a place for pedestrians, cyclists, boaters, residents and visitors to recreate and enjoy the Lake Superior shoreline.
