The City of Superior’s Master Park Plan, Municipal Forest Master Plan and Billings Park Master Plan provide management direction for City-owned lands and recreational resources within the City’s municipal boundary. These plans were last revised in 2010 and do not reflect the city’s current needs.
The City received a Wisconsin Coastal Management Grant to help with funding the development of a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (CORP). The City Council approved moving forward and working with the Northwest Regional Planning Commission to develop this plan, which engaged citizens in an asset-based recreation planning effort which focused on identifying a current management strategy for public open space, identifying opportunities to diversity recreational programming, facilities and services and ways to increase access to those program, facilities and services. Existing goals, objectives and policies within the Master Park Plan, Master Forest Plan and Billings Park Master Plan were reevaluated and revised as necessary and combined into a Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation plan (CORP).
