2019-2024 Park & Rec Plan
2019-2024 Park & Rec Plan

The intent of a Community Park and Recreation Plan for Hayes Township is to create an inventory of existing facilities and resources, identify community recreation and open space needs and set a plan of action for a 5-year period.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR) provides financial assistance to communities through its grant programs.

A current DNR approved Community Park and Recreation Plan is required to be eligible for Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) and  Waterways grants.

This is where your input and suggestions is important.

The Parks and Recreation Plan provides a framework for translating the community’s needs and desires into a specific strategy for developing park facilities and recreation programs.
