Grayling Township Recreation Plan Survey


Grayling Township is in the process of updating the Township's 5-year Recreation Plan. In order to qualify for MDNR recreation grant funding, communities must have a current, MDNR-approved Recreation Plan. Input from the public is an essential part of the planning process, so we need your input regarding recreational facilities in the Grayling Township area!  Please take the time to fill out this survey and let your voice be heard!  Your feedback is very important to us. Thank you!
