Gogebic County Recreation Survey Available

Gogebic County is working with the Western Upper Peninsula Planning and Development Region (WUPPDR) to update its five-year recreation plan. In addition to guiding improvements to the county’s recreation facilities and sites, the plan will ensure the county is eligible for certain grants from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR).

Members of the public can have a voice in the planning effort by taking a short survey. Online responses are preferred and can be provided at https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/88T3DNV. Alternatively, paper copies can be obtained starting October 9 at the Gogebic County Courthouse and Forestry & Parks Department in Bessemer; public libraries in Marenisco, Bessemer, and Wakefield; and township offices of Watersmeet and Erwin.

The survey will be available through October 29, 2017. For further information, contact Jerry Wuorenmaa at jwuorenmaa@wuppdr.org or (906) 482-7205 ext. 319.
