Melrose Township Parks and Recreation Plan

Welcome to the MELROSE Township PARKS AND RECREATION Plan Resource Webpage!

This webpage contains all of the most recent information, resources, and documentation for the Melrose Township Parks and Recreation Plan Development Process.  

The development of the Melrose Township Parks and Recreation Plan is occurring over an eight to twelve-month period from the summer of 2022 until the early summer of 2023.  The planning process will incorporate public input from surveys, direct contact with residents, and communication at public input sessions to be scheduled during the process timeframe.

The Melrose Township Planning Commission is the appointed body that is charged with guiding the Parks and Recreation Plan Process and development of the document.  Planning commission meetings are open to the public and residents and visitors are encouraged to attend and participate.  Information on Planning Commission meetings and agendas can be found at the following website:

Meeting dates and times will be added as they are scheduled
