On Wednesday, August 13, the Little Traverse Township Board formally dedicated a public fountain at the township's park on M-119 at Pleasantview Road in memory of long-time treasurer and trustee Wayne Allerding. Mr. Allerding served on the township board for 47 years, from 1965 until 2012. He died in June 2012. The park and fountain are located on the site of the former township hall; after the hall was torn down, Mr. Allerding was instrumental in keeping the site in township hands and free of development so as to preserve the public's view of Little Traverse Bay. The park has become a popular rest stop for users of the Little Traverse Wheelway. It is also a convenient place for the public to watch airplanes take off and land at the adjacent Harbor Springs Airport. The fountain is made of concrete and mortar that has been sculpted for artistic effect and bears a plaque honoring Mr. Allerding.
