Oconto County Forest & Parks Department completed and made available to the public the Draft Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan 2022-2026. Every five years people have an opportunity to review and provide suggestions to the Countywide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan. The draft plan was in part developed from information gathered from the public utilizing on-line surveys, local municipal leadership feedback, on-site inventories and local conversations.
The draft plan assesses outdoor recreation trends, needs and priorities and provides direction for the recreational future allowing Oconto County to remain eligible to receive federal funds for outdoor recreation projects. The draft plan will need to be reviewed by the public before being brought to the county for adoption.
The plan can be found on the County’s website www.co.oconto.wi.us under news and announcements or is available to read at the Forest & Parks Department, 301 Washington St., Oconto, WI 54153
Comments on the draft plan can be made in person on February 1, 2022 at the public listening session at 8:30 am during the Forest & Parks meeting can be submitted by e-mail email@example.com or in writing to Oconto County Forest & Parks, 301 Washington St, Oconto, WI 54153
