More than forty-five years ago, the Washtenaw County Parks and Recreation Commission (WCPARC) held its first meeting. The Commission’s land base at the time consisted of five roadside parks, and undeveloped land in Lyndon Township. One of the Commission’s first tasks was to create a five-year Parks and Recreation Master Plan. Since that time, the park system has grown to include more than 8,000 acres of land, including over 40 nature preserves and parks.
Every five years, the Commission updates the Parks and Recreation Master Plan to identify priorities and remain eligible for State of Michigan recreation grants. This plan is used as an overall operation and development guide for the county’s parks, preserves and other recreational amenities. In the spring of 2018, staff began the process of updating the plan with anticipated adoption by the Parks and Recreation Commission and County Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2019.
After extensive public input, a copy of the DRAFT 2020-2024 5-Year Recreation Master Plan is now available for review and comment. A Public Hearing will be held September 25, 2019, at 6:30pm at the Parks Administration Offices, 2230 Platt Road, Ann Arbor. We invite you to attend or forward your comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
