Information on "Next Steps"

The draft plan has been presented to the City appointed commission for the Parks & Recreation Department. On January 7, 2019, the City Council will hear a presentation on the draft plan. Should the City receive any pertinent comments, there remains the opportunity to revise the plan while it's in draft form and still meet the DNR's submittal deadline of February 1, 2019. The Parks & Recreation Commission will be conducting a public hearing on January 10, 2019; the City Council will be conducting a public hearing on January 28, 2019, at which time they may adopt the plan.
