Northwest Regional Planning Commission and the city of Superior are giving people a little more time to share their thoughts about what they would like to see in the city for outdoor recreation.

"We're going to give people through the weekend to respond," said Jason Laumann, a planner with Northwest Regional Planning.

Superior Parks, Recreation and Forestry is working with Northwest Regional Planning Commission to update and consolidate the city's Master Park Plan, Municipal Forest Master Plan and Billings Park Master Plan. Among the most important parts of the plan update is assessing the needs and desires of the community and identifying community priorities for outdoor recreation growth and expansion.

This is the public's opportunity to express thoughts about the future of outdoor recreation in the city of Superior in a quick and easy way.

The survey is available until Monday, when the results will be tabulated.

The survey will inform and guide the Outdoor Recreation Master Plan update process, which will be ongoing through the spring of 2018. The purpose of the updated plan is to establish a clear vision and framework for the future of outdoor recreation in the city of Superior. Areas of focus include parks, amenities, facilities, trails and the municipal forest.

Laumann said he plans to present the survey information gathered to the Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan committee when it meets at 5 p.m. Tuesday in Room 204 of the Government Center, 1316 N. 14th St.
