IRON RIVER, Mich. — On Oct. 16, the Iron River City Council approved a request to rename the Iron River RV Park the Klint Safford Memorial RV Park, reports the Iron County Reporter.
The Iron County Reporter says Safford was Iron River’s city manager from 1974 to 1980. He played an instrumental role in the development of Ice Lake Park, Nanaimo Park, the Downtown Development Authority and off-street parking. In 1990, he proposed the development of the RV park.
“The Iron River RV park is now a point of pride for the city,” said Dawn Pisoni, who made the presentation, “but if it weren’t for Klint’s vision and perseverance, the park would never have happened.”
