2019 to 2023 Livingston County Parks and Open Space Plan

2019-2023 Parks Plan Presentation

This 2019 – 2023 Livingston County Parks & Open Space Plan represents an update to the 2012 – 2017 Livingston County Parks & Open Space Plan. The jurisdiction of this recreation plan is Livingston County, specifically Livingston County government owned park land. The plan is not intended to plan for the recreation needs of the local units of government in Livingston County, as more than half of the County’s twenty (20) local units of government have individual park plans addressing parks, recreation, trails, and open space in their jurisdiction.

The purpose of this plan is to guide the parks, open space and recreation decision-making of Livingston County government over the next five years. This plan follows the format required by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in their publication entitled Guidelines For The Development Of Community Park, Recreation, Open Space and Greenway Plans.

Upcoming Dates of Importance Related to the Plan:

March 20 - Public Hearing on Plan

April 1 - Review by Livingston County General Government Committee

April 3 - Review by Livingston County Finance Committee

April 9 - Review by Livingston County Board of Commissioners
