The Manistee County Planning Commission, in partnership with the Alliance for Economic Success, is developing a 5-year Recreaion Plan. The group invites input from residents to gather ideas, hear comments, and listen to suggestions about recreational programs, facilities, and parks in Manistee County.

Over one-third of the land in Manistee County is publicly held.

Some quick facts:
  • Over 91,000-acres are under federal ownership,
  • About 29,000-acres owned by the State of Michigan, and
  • 2,600-acres are owned by local governments
  • In total, Manistee County occupies an area of about 357,000-acres.

To capitalize on the emerging trend of silent sports, the recreation planning process will engage all county interests, promote community-wide participation, and incorporate this input into a final action plan. Part of the challenge will also invlove developing the best strategies to connect the dots between Manistee County’s tourism industry and its public outdoor lands.

There are two opportunities for public input towards creation of the Draft Recreation Plan. The first is an open house to be held Jan 30, 2008 from 4-7 pm at Brethren High School. The second is Jan 31, 2008 from 4-7 pm at the Faith Covenant Church, 475 8th St, Manistee.

Stop in at your convenience to talk with recreation planners and community leaders.
