|The public is invited to share ideas and input on a new Trails Connection and Shoreline Access and Connectivity Plan for Bay City State Park.
At the meeting, both components of the draft plan will be discussed:
The final Trails Connection and Shoreline Access and Connectivity Plan likely will include trail connections, boat and beach access, permanent and temporary facilities, vehicle access and other future enhancements.
|"Gaining public input and feedback is a critical step in any thoughtful plan development process," said Scott Cook, DNR Saginaw Bay regional field planner. "This plan will assist the DNR in guiding future enhancements at Bay City State Park."
One of the action goals that was born out of the phase 2 general management plan for Bay City State Park was to develop a complementary plan that would help identify desired visitor experiences and connections between the lakeshore, existing park amenities and trails. The general management plan, approved in fall 2018 after a public input process, helps define long-range planning and a management strategy for the park.
