Parks and Recreation Master Plan
Carlisle/Wortman Associates prepared the Parks and Recreation Master Plans for Oakland County Parks in 1992, 1997, and most recently in 2007.
The updated Master Plan is the guiding document by which Oakland County Parks can continue its mission to provide a county park system that enhances the quality of life of the residents of Oakland County.
The 1992 Master Plan relied heavily on data gathered from a resident survey, park user feedback and Parks and Recreation Commission and staff structured retreat conducted to establish the Commission mission statements, goals and policies.
The 1997 and 2007 Parks and Recreation Master Plan updates continue to focus on responding to the changing recreational demands and needs of county residents. The plan formulates goals and objectives which are based on identified recreation needs and opportunities. The most recent goals and priorities are land acquisition and natural resource preservation, high quality park facilities and recreation programs, exceptional services, increased coordination, and fiscal responsibility.
