Parks Master Plan Update


The City of Saugatuck engaged Fleis & Vandenbrink Engineering to prepare an update for the 2015-2019 Joint 5-Year Park &Recreation Plan for the City of Saugatuck. Their proposal is based on updating the current plan, as it relates to the City of Saugatuck, to meet current Michigan Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) plan submittal and funding eligibility requirements. It will add new information to the plan that is specific to the City’s long-term recreational needs and desires. This new information will include site specific preliminary master plans for various parks throughout the City in order to give a more detailed assessment for recreational development beyond the existing 5 Year Park & Recreation Plan. Fleis & Vandenbrink will develop a conceptual plan for each of the major parks that can be used for funding and planning purposes. This goes above and beyond the requirements of an MDNR parks and recreation plan, but is extremely useful for planning and grant applications.
