Clintonville seeks public input on recreation plan


Grace Kirchner Leader Correspondent

The city of Clintonville, with the support from the East Central Regional Planning Commission, has begun to update its five-year Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan.

Now the public has the opportunity to have input. An open house is planned for Monday to involve residents in the needs assessment.

The open house will be held from 5:45-7:30 p.m. on Monday at the Community Center, 30 S. Main Street, Clintonville. to hear your opinions and ideas on what is needed in terms of Parks and Recreation for Clintonville.

Another opportunity for a public hearing will be held prior to the formal adoption of the plan, which is anticipated for later this fall.

The city kicked off a nine-month planning process in June to complete the update to the plan. This process will include a comprehensive examination of the park and recreation facilities while identifying recommendations for improving the system and its services. A survey of the parks and recreation facilities was offered over the summer for community input.

For information, contact Justin McAuly, parks and recreation manager, at 715-823-7660 or Trish Nau with the East Central Wisconsin Regional Planning Commission at 920-751-4770.
