5 Year Plan Public Meetings

Deer Creek on the shore
Our parks and trails exist for citizens to use and enjoy through recreation, conservation, and education. Public input and feedback is compiled into a Five Year Plan that helps guide priority projects and goals. The next Five Year Plan will cover 2019 to 2023. The survey and first round of feedback sessions were completed in Aug. 2018.

A draft plan will be presented to the community to follow up on the information gathering sessions held in the summer and the survey feedback. We invite you to the presentation of our draft 5-Year Plan based on input we received during our first round of public meetings.

Working in partnership with Stark County Regional Planning Commission, each public meeting will have an emphasis on park locations and services that are located in or near specific communities.
