Public Invited to Share Input on 2021-2025 Parks Master Plan

You're invited to view a draft of the City of Midland’s updated five-year recreation plan before it goes to the Midland City Council for approval in January 2021.

The plan, developed by the City’s Parks and Recreation Commission, evaluates existing recreation opportunities, reviews public opinion regarding parks and recreation, and proposes a five-year action plan for implementing proposed park improvements and new initiatives. Once approved, the plan will replace the existing Five-Year Recreation Plan that was implemented in February 2015. 

The plan is required by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) to apply for MDNR park and recreation grant funding programs.

To review the plan, check out the document links listed below. When you're ready, click the graphic above to share your input electronically via our E-CityHall public engagement platform. Comments may also be submitted in writing to Midland City Hall, c/o Karen Murphy, 333 W. Ellsworth St., Midland, MI 48640 or via email to recreation@midland-mi.org. Comments will be collected through Monday, January 11, 2021, at 4 p.m.
