The Recreation Plan is intended to guide decision makers for the future development and improvement of the variety of recreation opportunities throughout the township. The primary emphasis is to encourage coordination of efforts by the various entities who have a stake in the Township recreational resources.  These entities may include Township residents, the Township Planning Commission, the Township Board, lake associations, adjacent Townships, the County, the DNR, the DEQ, the Army Corps of Engineers, land conservancies, and commercial entities.

The Recreation Plan includes an inventory of the existing recreational assets, sets a vision for what recreational amenities should exist in the Township in the future, suggests goals to achieve that vision, and then provides a plan for how goals can be achieved.
