Farmington Hills wants feedback on recreation plan

December 10, 2018 by  

Every five years, the Farmington Hills Department of Special Services puts together a Parks & Recreation Master Plan. That plan is now complete, and officials are asking for public input into it.

The master plan is developed periodically using the guidelines provided by the Department of Natural Resources (DNR). When the plan is completed, it helps officials map out future needs, and makes the city eligible to receive funding from the DNR.

The Master Plan is a guide for the recreation, parks, programming, and facilities decisions that the Special Services Department will make for the next five years, and public input is a highly important component of the process.

Earlier this year, Farmington Hills conducted an initial survey of the Master Plan, and the results have now been compiled into a draft of the new Master Plan, which will be available to the public for their review and input soon. Officials dealing with matters like this could use printing services to make additional copies for review.

City residents without computer access can review the Plan at the Costsick Center on Eleven Mile Road, Monday through Friday from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm, and until 7:00 pm on Wednesdays. For those who have access to the interent, the Plan is on the city’s website.

The review period is limited, beginning 30 days before the date of the public hearing on the matter, which is January 14. Thus, the comment period begins this Friday, December 14.
