Who is S.R.A.?
"Sparta Recreation Authority" is the organization formed by Sparta Township, The Village of Sparta and the S.A.R.A. organization.
 
The Sparta Recreation Authority board members were chosen by each of the organizations as a representative of that organization.
 
We have joined together to design, build, operate and maintain a recreational center and sports park for Sparta, MI.
 
Each group has equal representation on the S.R.A. committee and is dedicated to providing maximum benefit at the lowest possible cost by making the most thorough, cost effective decisions, with the communities best interest in mind. This "Authority" committee is meeting regularly to research, develop and oversee the progress of the park from concept to completion and beyond.
 
The Sparta Recreation Authority will also oversee all funds for this community project. Public funds, donations and any source of income to the project will go through this organization.
