Belle Isle Park Advisory Committee

  • The Belle Isle Park Advisory Committee advises the state on implementation of improvements, master planning and public safety for Belle Isle Park. The committee consists of three representatives appointed by the governor; one representative appointed by Detroit City Council; two representatives appointed by the mayor of the city; and one representative to serve as chair jointly appointed by the governor and mayor. As outlined in the lease that provides for state management of the park, at least three members of the advisory committee must be residents of the City of Detroit. The chair of the advisory committee, along with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources (DNR), will provide an annual report about the park to Detroit's mayor and City Council.
