Park Development Committee

Update

The Parks Development Committee, Village Staff, and its partners will be starting the review and updating process for the Village Comprehensive Parks and Recreation Plan (CPRP) in Fall/Winter 2022 and will be holding educational and informational meetings, soliciting input, and providing workshops in the coming months related to the plan update. The Village’s CPRP was last updated in 2020, where minor changes were made related to the proposed work at Lake Pacawa Park. Yet, the last time the whole plan was reviewed and updated was in 2015.

Public participation is crucial and is intended to guild future policy decisions as well as should verify that the resulting plan is created with the communities needs and interests in mind. A plan without action has no apparent value, therefore with robust engagement and a unified community vision, plans can lead to appropriate implementation and action. The community stakeholders will be asked to assist the Village in creating the best possible recreational environments not only for their specific family, friends, and businesses but for all those whom come to the Village of Plover to live, work, and play.

On the right side of this page there are helpful links and documents (some may still be in draft form) related to the proposed updates and public participation. If you have any questions related to the recreational facilities, opportunities, or the updating process please reach out to Dominique Swangstu - Village Natural Resources/Recreation Planner, at 715-345-5250 or Dswangstu@ploverwi.gov for additional details.
