A Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Strategy (CORS) is a formal document designed to assist communities in the development of park and open space amenities that will satisfy the needs of their citizens. Good planning is essential in making sure that these services are provided in an efficient, effective manner. Several important components of the planning are as follows:
- Keeping up with changing regulations
- Creating a schedule for improving existing facilities
- Deciding when and where to implement additional facilities
- Identifying and adapting to meet evolving community needs
The Town of Grand Chute last adopted a CORS in 2014. The 2014 plan was meant to provide recommendations for the period from 2014 through 2018. It is the Town's policy to update this plan every five years to provide guidance concerning park & recreation facilities and operations, and to meet requirements of the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources for grant funding eligibility. The current update will address the years 2019-2023.
