Wexford County Recreation Plan

Wexford County is updating its 5-Year Recreation Plan. The new Recreation Plan will review existing recreation facilities in the County, discuss community-identified recreation needs, and make recommendations for future recreation improvements and activities. The plan will be developed to meet Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) guidelines for recreation plans, which are required in order to be eligible for recreation grants through the MDNR. The updated Recreation Plan will allow Wexford County to apply for recreation grants from 2019 through 2023. The Wexford County Recreation and Building Committee is overseeing the plan update. Assistance is being provided by Networks Northwest.

Public Input

Wexford County collected input from residents, property owners, and visitors on recreation needs and preferences through an online questionnaire in the Spring of 2018. Survey results will be used to establish goals and priorities for recreation in the County over the next five years.

For questions and comments about the Recreation Plan update, or to be notified when the draft plan is available for review and comment, please contact:
