Planning Commission OKs Parks Plan

At its Feb. 15, 2011 meeting, the Ann Arbor planning commission voted to recommend approval of the Park and Recreation Open Space (PROS) plan. The park advisory commission made a similar recommendation at its meeting earlier in the day. The PROS plan provides an inventory, needs assessment and action plan for the city’s parks system, and is updated every five years – this version of the planning document covers 2011 through 2015. The updated document is required by the state in order for the city to be eligible to apply for certain grants. Final approval will be needed from city council – it is slated for the council’s March 6 meeting.

This brief was filed soon after adjournment of the planning commission meeting at the Washtenaw County administration building. A more detailed report will follow: [link]
