Scott Faulkner

Scott and his wife Robbin have lived on the watershed for over 35 years, finding their home on the Little Muskegon on Croton Pond, while raising their daughter and engaging in business in the City of Newaygo. Together, they built the River Stop Cafe, a restaurant in continuous operation for almost 25 years. Scott’s education background involves a music performance scholarship to college, and he continues to perform in and around west Michigan.

Scott also has an extensive background in senior management, in private industry as a CEO of an Atlanta-based software company, in non-profit Chamber of Commerce work, and has served in the position as the Economic and Community Development Coordinator for the City of Newaygo. He spends time off reading, making music, paddle boarding, mountain biking, and boating on the Pond with friends and family.

Creating an authentic strategy that leads to a healthy, clean, sustainable, future for the watershed while preserving and enhancing property values, is a vigorous challenge that Scott believes can and must be achieved by the MRWA in the seasons and decades to come.
