What Do You Think of Utica's New Parks and Recreation Master Plan?
Source: City of Utica

Over the past year, the City of Utica has been working to develop a new, five-year Parks, Recreation and Open Space Master Plan. This new plan will guide park development and investments in recreation amenities through 2018.

Utica last updated its park and recreation plan in 2007 and under the State of Michigan's Guidelines for the Development of Community Park, Recreation, Open Space and Greenway Plans, the City must update their parks and recreation strategy every five years to be eligible for grants from the state.

The new plan includes a comprehensive community profile, updated administrative structure, detailed inventory of parks, new goals and objectives, and an action plan for investments and improvements.

In order to fulfill the State's requirements for adopting a new plan, the draft document will be available for public review and comment for the next 30 days. The plan is available online at cityofutica.org (PDF) and hard copies of the draft plan are also available for review at the Utica City Hall (7550 Auburn Rd.), or at the Utica Community Library (7530 Auburn Rd.).

Comments on the plan should be submitted in writing to:
