Midland County, with a population of over 80,000 and home to four major river corridors, is developing a recreation plan to serve as a guideline to improve recreation facilities and develop new recreational opportunities.
The planning process will take about six months to complete. The foundation of the goals in the plan will be based upon input from the citizens of Midland County. The county intends to use the plan to guide their work on all future recreational and parks projects within the county. It is also a strategic document that articulates specific goals to various agencies and organizations that fund parks and recreation improvement projects. The plan will be developed in accordance to the guidelines for Community Park, Recreation, Open Space, and Greenway Plans published by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources. Completion of a five-year recreation plan will allow Midland County to pursue DNR-administered grants.
This website was created by the community planners at Spicer Group in conjunction with the Midland County Parks and Recreation Department for the development of the Midland County Recreation Plan. We can be reached at:
