Master Plan Survey #6: Recreation Opportunities

A primary goal of the City of Harbor Springs elected and appointed officials is to incorporate the values and priorities of City residents in the administration of City government.  The Master Plan is an important tool toward that end.  It is the document that guides all future land use decisions for the next twenty years, or more.  To that end, the City has created a series of surveys that gauges the community’s thoughts on several Master Plan goals. Your input is greatly appreciated.

Survey #6 is related to the current Master Plan’s Goal #6: “Residents and visitors will enjoy a unique collection of recreation opportunities."
