City of Merrill
Outdoor Recreation Plan
The City of Merrill Outdoor Recreation Plan, 2013-2018, will be used to identify new projects for development as well as which parks need refurbished recreation facilities (like trails, buildings, or playgrounds). The plan enables the City of Merrill to be eligible for competitive federal and state outdoor recreation grant money that usually pays half the cost per project.
This plan assesses the existing outdoor recreation system of city parks, and school facilities in the City of Merrill. Recreational needs will be identified based upon public input, national & state guidelines, and Merrill & NCWRPC staff analysis. The Merrill Parks & Recreation Commission will review all of this information and guide the overall direction of recommendations to improve the recreation system over the next five years.
Submission of this report to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources establishes eligibility for Merrill to apply for a variety of federal and state aids to improve the park system.
Non-profit groups, foundations, and the general public may also use this document to coordinate their own private efforts for developing outdoor recreation facilities.
