Our proposal is to use this campus in the same way that it has been used consistently for more than 60 years. We’re only seeking to allow day use, as well as outdoor education and training programs to those not staying overnight. If our PUD application is approved by the Township, it simply means that people will be allowed to come back for the day to hike, bike or ski our trails, play disc golf, kayak on the lake and participate in our other outdoor recreation and education programming.
Due to recent actions and litigation by a group of Rennie Lake neighbors who seek to restrict public access to GO•REC property and amenities, we’re currently only allowed to be open to those staying overnight in our cabins or on our campsites. We are prohibited from allowing outdoor enthusiasts like you to visit our center and participate in our programs unless you’ve booked an overnight stay.
GO·REC must become a self-sustaining entity in order to continue operating. There is no financing necessary to expand its use, but it does need to be able to financially support itself. By adding the ability to rent to other entities, offer classes for purchase, and lease venue space, this will sustain the campus and be able to continue its day-to-day function.
“Throughout the years, Rotary Charities has collected more than $100 million in profits gushed from oil and gas wells drilled on a 450-acre tract of land in the Spider and Rennie Lakes area.”
