Outdoor Recreation 

The St. Croix County Outdoor Recreation Plan serves as a guide to the development of parks and outdoor recreation facilities and is updated every five years. There is a need to provide for increasing recreational demand while at the same time improving quality of life, enhancing property values and protecting natural resources for future generations.

Public comments are being sought for the update of the St. Croix County Outdoor Recreation plan. A public hearing is scheduled for September 20, 2018 during the St. Croix County Community Development Committee meeting at 5 pm in the County Board room. A copy of the proposed plan is available below.
