June public meeting will gather feedback regarding outdoor recreation in northern Wisconsin

http://dnr.wi.gov/news/releases/article/?id=4247

MADISON - Department of Natural Resources staff will hold a June 19 public meeting to gather input regarding the draft Northwoods Region portion of the Recreation Opportunities Analysis.

This initial Northwoods Region ROA draft [PDF] identifies future opportunities to provide high-quality recreation experiences and the potential role of DNR-managed properties in helping to meet those opportunities within the region.

A June 19 public open house will be held from 4-7 p.m. at the Hodag Banquet Center, 1540 Pueblo Dr., Rhinelander, to outline current efforts in the Northwoods Region. Department staff will give brief presentations at 5:30 p.m.

Recreation Opportunities Analysis process will identify future recreation needs

The Recreation Opportunities Analysis will examine existing outdoor-based recreation opportunities and future recreation needs in eight regions throughout Wisconsin. The study will identify future opportunities for providing high-quality recreation experiences and the potential role of DNR properties in helping to meet those priorities. The Northwoods Region includes Forest, Florence, Iron, Langlade, Lincoln, Oneida, Price, Taylor, and Vilas counties.

In April, department staff began to gather public input to look at existing outdoor-based recreation opportunities and consider future recreation needs in nine regions throughout Wisconsin. The Recreation Opportunities Analysis will generally describe recreation opportunities across the state and contain more details for each region of the state.

While the ROA process will begin in these nine northern counties, additional regional public meetings will be held as the process moves forward.

To receive email updates regarding the ROA process, visit dnr.wi.gov and click on the email icon near the bottom of the page titled "subscribe for updates for DNR topics," then follow the prompts and select "Recreation opportunities analysis," found within the list titled "outdoor recreation."

For more information regarding the recreational opportunities analysis, search keyword "ROA."
