Recreation Planning

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources requires communities to have a DNR-approved 5-year recreation plan to qualify for many DNR Recreation Grant programs. SWMPC staff works with local communities to create recreation plans as well as assists communities with the grant application process. SWMPC staff works closely with Planning Commissions and Recreation Board/Committees to guide them through the planning and grant process.

To see past and current plans, check out the Planning Library.

If you would like assistance writing or updating your community's recreation plan, please contact us at (269) 925-1137.
