DNR Seeks Comment on Recreation Planning

Department of Natural Resources staff will gather input at five public open houses next month to shape future planning regarding outdoor recreation opportunities in northern and northeastern Wisconsin. In spring 2017, the DNR staff began the Recreation Opportunities Analysis process to collect information regarding existing outdoor-based recreation opportunities and identify future recreation needs in eight regions throughout Wisconsin. This process will identify future opportunities for providing high-quality recreation experiences and the potential role of DNR properties in helping to meet those needs.

Each meeting will be held from 4-7 pm. DNR staff will provide a brief project overview at 4:30 and 6 pm. The Door County meeting will be held Tuesday, Aug. 22, at Stone Harbor Resort and Conference Center, Sturgeon Bay.
