 Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan

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). 

The Parks, Recreation & Forestry Department has 2 meetings scheduled this fall. These meetings are a great chance to give feedback and ideas on how our City facilities should develop over the next 5-10 years.  If you are not able to make one of the scheduled meetings to discuss ideas with staff, City residents are encouraged to fill out the on-line survey.  Put your ideas/thoughts and comments out there! Your input is greatly appreciated.
