DETROIT (AP) — Residents in southeastern Michigan are being asked to comment on a regional parks and recreation plan.

The Southeast Michigan Council of Governments (SEMCOG) says the plan addresses integrating community health and wellness initiatives with outdoor recreation opportunities and equitable access to those opportunities. It also supports conservation and stewardship of natural and cultural resources, in balance with outdoor recreation opportunities.

SEMCOG says the plan’s aim is to ensure the recreation system meets quality of life, health and accessibility needs of residents and visitors, and economic development and environment priorities.

SEMCOG supports coordinated local planning with technical, data and intergovernmental resources. It serves Livingston, Macomb, Monroe, Oakland, St. Clair, Washtenaw and Wayne counties.

Comments about the plan can be brought up during SEMCOG’s May 2 executive committee meeting in Detroit.
