CORP Plan – 2021-2025

The Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP) is used to guide the City in making decisions related to improvements at existing parks, new facilities, land acquisition, recreation trail extensions and improvements, and ADA requirements through the year 2021 and beyond. The City of Port Washington is currently in the process of updating its’ Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP).
