Oneida County
Outdoor Recreation Plan

Planning has begun for the 2019-2023 update...see below.

Oneida County Forestry, Land, and Recreation Department (FLRD) updated its Outdoor Recreation Plan for the next five years (2014-2018).

This Outdoor Recreation Plan (ORP) focuses upon FLRD managed outdoor recreation facilities, and also list projects within the towns. All listed projects become eligible for competitive federal and state outdoor recreation grant money when this plan is adopted by the local municipality. Now that this plan is adopted, then the local entities may apply for project funding.

This Outdoor Recreation Plan:
1) Assesses the existing recreation system in Oneida County;
2) Identifies recreation needs based upon public input, past plans, and recreation standards; and
3) Establishes recommendations for improving the recreation system over the next five years.

Submission of this report to the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) establishes eligibility for the County and local units of government for a variety of Federal and State Aids to purchase land and to add facilities to existing outdoor recreation lands. The Oneida County Outdoor Recreation Plan is required to apply for Federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), and various Wisconsin Stewardship Grant funding.

Non-profit groups, foundations, and the general public may also use this document to coordinate their own private efforts for developing outdoor recreation facilities.

Towns may choose to adopt this plan too.
If a local government is going to use the County Outdoor Rec. Plan as their own, then the local government needs to pass a basic resolution stating that the: "Oneida County Outdoor Recreation Plan, 2014-2018" is adopted as the local government's plan too.



Oneida County's Forestry, Land, & Recreation Department is updating this 5-year Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP) in 2018.
