The Barry County Parks and Recreation Board needs your input!
Please take a moment to provide your input to help shape the future of recreation facilities in Barry County. The Barry County Parks and Recreation Board, in association with the Charlton Park Village and Museum Board, is in the process of preparing a new five-year County Parks and Recreation Plan. The 2014 Recreation Plan will serve as a guide for the future development of recreation opportunities for Barry County residents and visitors.
To ensure the plan meets the needs of the Community, the public is invited to participate in an on-line survey available at
The survey will be available until September 6th.
Comments from the Public Meeting held in May raised some important questions regarding funding and possible future projects. We need to hear from the larger community in order to set priorities for the future.
The current five-year plan expires in December 2013. This new plan is required by the Michigan Department of Natural Resources in order to qualify for state and federal grant funding. Funds are available for land acquisition for parks, green space and trails, and development of recreation facilities through the Natural Resources Trust Fund and the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund.
Thank you for another great season.
