Master Recreation Plan Update in 2019
The PATMC will update its Master recreation Plan in 2019. The Council will seek feedback and comments from the public via surveys and public hearings. Watch for our alerts!
For your convenience we are posting digital copies of our existing plan. Files are large and separated.
The purpose of the Polly Ann Trail Recreation Master Plan is to provide a vision
for future allocation of resources toward the development, maintenance, programming,
and operation for the segment of the Polly Ann Trail in Oakland County, Michigan.
The development of the Polly Ann Trail Recreation Master Plan is overseen by the Polly Ann
Trailway Management Council and assistance was provided by Oakland County Planning &
Economic Development Services. The PATMC has representation from each of the following
five communities: Addison Township, Village of Leonard, Oxford Township, Village of Oxford,
and Orion Township. This plan does not replace, duplicate, or conflict with the adopted
recreation plans for these communities. Rather, this plan complements these documents
and continues to encourage a cooperative, multi-jurisdictional effort.
The purposes of this Recreation Master Plan are to:
• reaffirm the need for and benefits of trails for non-motorized transportation and
recreation in the region
• set goals and strategic plans for the PATMC and Polly Ann Trail Manager
• stimulate non-motorized networks linking the Polly Ann Trail with other greenways
and open spaces in Southeast Michigan
• qualify for private, local, state, and federal grants
This plan will also help the Polly Ann Trailway Management Council work toward achieving the
following Mission Statement:
“To establish and operate a non-motorized greenway accessible to all
and positively impacting the lives of all within its sphere of influence.”
