5 Year Plan Public Meetings

Deer Creek on the shore
We are currently seeking input for our Five-Year Plan for 2019 through 2023. Our parks and trails exist for citizens to use and enjoy through recreation, conservation, and education. The Five-Year Plan Public Meetings provide the opportunity to give feedback and suggestions for future projects and initiatives through programs and events, outreach and volunteering, public safety, and park and trail development.

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.

Your participation is essential for preparing a meaningful plan and responding to public feedback. We invite you to take this survey and help us evaluate the needs of our communities and attend one – or more – public meetings this summer.
