Addison Oaks and Bald Mountain State Park. The acquisition and subsequentdevelopment of this 5-acre, approximately one-mile trail segment would also extend theeast/west connector trail that was recently completed at Addison Oaks with MNRTFfunding assistance. Creating this trail link is an action item in the 5-year recreation planbeing developed for 2013-2017.4. MICHIGAN NATURAL RESOURCES TRUST FUND DEVELOPMENT GRANT PROGRAM• Fishing and hunting, beaches, boating access, picnic areas, campgrounds, wintersports areas, playgrounds, ball fields, tennis courts and trails; along with facilitiesthat support outdoor recreation such as nature interpretive buildings, park visitorcenters, restrooms and storage buildings for park equipment.Proposed project: Groveland Oaks Group & Day Use restroom/shower facilityEstimated project cost: $400,000 ($200,000 MNRTF, $200,000 OCPR)Summary: The CIP calls for a much-needed restroom facility at Groveland Oaks thatwould service the group camping area (currently serviced by port-a-johns), and the dayuse area at the park.

Stencil, Executive Officer; Jon Noyes, Supervisor of PlanningSubmitted: December 5, 2012Subject: Informational Item- MDNR Acquisition Proposal UpdateINTRODUCTION AND HISTORYOCPRC staff has been in conversation with the Michigan Department of Natural Resources regarding thepotential development of an ORV (Off Road Vehicle) recreation area in Oakland County for more than adecade. In 2008, the State ORV Plan identified that the operation of an ORV recreation area by or inpartnership with a local government in Southeast Michigan was a top priority. In 2012, MDNR DirectorRodney Stokes spoke before the OCPR Commission and identified his interest in exploring partnershipopportunities with the County Parks for the expressed purpose of increasing recreation opportunity inSoutheast Michigan, promoting governmental efficiency, and spurring economic growth. ORV recreation wasone of the areas mentioned specifically.Ron Olsen, with the Department of Natural Resources, has contacted Dan Stencil with a unique opportunity forthe MDNR to modify their 2012 grant request to the Michigan Natural Resources Trust Fund (MNRTF) toinclude $4 million for the acquisition of a portion of the Koenig Gravel Operation Property to set up theopportunity for the State to lease the property to the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission for thepurpose of operating an Multi-use ORV park.STAFF RECOMMENDATIONStaff recommends that the Commission support the MDNR request for MNRTF funds. If grant funds areapproved, staff will develop a proposed lease and business strategy for the operation of a mixed use parkincluding water recreation, trails, fishing, ORV's, natural area preservation and the potential opportunity for onsitecamping.As the State's primary interest in this partnership is the creation of ORV recreational opportunities, OCPRCstaff has consider the following to be critical in the making this recommendation:There are more than 158,000 ORV licenses issued to Michigan residents annually. Oakland Countyrepresents more than 6.4% of the state total, more than any other county, and has no legal public ORVriding areas. (Note that snowmobiles are not considered or licensed as ORV's)Approximately two-thirds of Michigan ORV-owners live in the southern portion of the Lower Peninsula;most public ORV opportunities are several hours drive awayDespite its relatively small size (327 acres with 230 acres available for ORV use), Genesee CountyParks' The Mounds is the fourth most popular ORV destination in the state behind Silver Lake Dunes,Bull Gap, and St. Helen's Motorsport AreaMore than 19,000 licensed ORVs, from Michigan, Indiana and Ohio are transported along the 1-75Corridor destined for riding opportunities in Michigan's Northern Lower Peninsula8 G-1


- -Page 2Michigan Residents spend more than $143 million on ORV trips annually within the State; 63% of thoseexpenditures are made within the ORV destination communityMore than 7,000 households in Oakland County have licensed ORVs with annual expenditures on ORVtrips estimated at more than $8 millionGenesee County Parks is now bringing Special Events to The Mounds to attract ORV tourism dollars.The 2011 Gator vs. The Mounds event, sponsored by John Deere, was identified as bringing more than$280,000 in economic activity for local businessesMOTIONMove to receive and file this report.8 G-2

Red Oaks Waterpark saw anincrease in revenue of$119,993 from 2011. The facility's revenues were $1,398,880 and expenditures were$1 ,23 7 ,330. Waterford Oaks Waterpark saw in increase in attendance of 1,311 people from 2011. Thewaterpark's revenues were $678,015 and expenditures were $939,712. Although there was an increase inattendance, Waterford Oaks did see a decrease in revenue due to reduced admission prices with the removal ofthe Slidewinder. Additionally, there was an increase in expenses partly due to the aging infrastructure.The summer was hot with temperatures in the 90s and low 1 00s. Waterpark staff completed a safe, successfulseason without incident despite the high attendance and record temperatures. This was a true testament to theirprofessionalism and dedication to training throughout the season.Red Oaks WaterparkGeneral Infom1ation:Open Saturday before Memorial Day - Labor Day annuallyHours: Mon.-Fri. 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Weekends & Holidays I 0 a.m.-7 p.m. (early and late season hours vary).Features: Wave Pool, Water slides, River Ride, Children' s Water Playground and Splash DeckPark capacity: 2,4002012 Stats:• Opened 93 days • 116,051 Guests • $1 ,398,880 Revenue • $1,23 7,330 ExpenseRed Oaks Waterpark 3 Year Compairsion$1,500,000 ,.---->===·='----------:r-:-=~=-----------------­$1,170,610$1,000,000$500,000$161,550$0• Revenue • Expense • Subsidy/Profit9 B- 1

Marketing and Communications Initiatives:Marketing and promotional efforts for both waterparks included several new initiatives. A billboard,featuring both Red Oaks and Waterford Oaks, was featured at 1-75 and 12 Mile Road from June 4-August 5.The billboard was observed by 340,966 individuals weekly, according to statistics from CBS OutdoorAdvertising.Cross-promotion of other facilities was achieved via two new initiatives. The first was a LED sign thatwas installed on the ticket booth at Red Oaks. Messages about camping, golf, hiking trails, nature centerprograms and more was streamed to visitors, along with information on the weather and the faci.Iity' s capacitystatus.Throughout the parks system, signs used for the millage campaign were recycled and refreshed withcolor photographs and text promoting the other facilities. The Oakland County Fair was promoted in June, thewaterparks were highlighted in July and camping was the topic for August. This low-cost method crosspromotedthe other amenities to the waterpark guests.The target audience of mothers with children ages 0-18 was reached via advertising in Metro ParentMagazine 's digital and p1int editions. The magazine has a monthly readership of268,000. Additionally, thisgroup of family fun decision makers was reached via ads and editorial content on OaklandCountyMoms.comwhich draws more than 70,000+ readers.To promote the waterparks county wide, ads were placed in special sections in The Oakland Press(70,000 circulation + 487,000 online viewers) including the Michigan Vacation Guide and 50 Things to Do.In August, when attendance historically starts to drop, ads were placed for Red Oaks in The DailyTribune (20,000 circulation) and for Waterford Oaks in The Oakland Press to regenerate interest in the last fourweeks of operation.Additionally, the waterparks were promoted via an ad in the Oakland County Resource Guide (72,000circulation) which is distributed to local libraries, cities, villages and townships, doctor's offices and more.To date, in 2012, the parks system has garnered $200,000+ in free media exposure. This is accomplishedby news releases written by the Communications and Marketing unit staff and emails and phone calls to mediato "drum up" interest among media in covering the Oakland County Parks. Fourth of July coverage of thewaterparks this year was outstanding. The waterparks were featured in The Oakland Press, The Detroit News,The Detroit Free Press, The Daily Tribune, The Associated Press and TV Channels 2, 4 & 7. Additionally, thewaterparks made the front page of The Oakland Press twice - May 26 and June 5 and the "second front page ­A-3" on June 25, July 20 and September 3. Several ofthese "hits" featured an entire page devoted to waterparkcontent a $1 0,000+ value if that same space were purchased for an advertisement.On the local, regional and state level, the waterparks are promoted free of charge by theCommunications and Marketing staff researching, submitting and maintaining editorial and photographiccontent on websites. Currently, the staff keeps content up to date on nearly 200 outside websites includingMichigan.org and waterparks.org.Free digital ads were hosted by Prosper e-newsletter which has 3,000 subscribers. And, Waterford OaksWaterpark was featured on the front cover of the Oakland County Y ellowbook free of charge.Another key tool in promoting the waterparks is the use of emarketing messages targeted to subscribersspecifically interested in the waterparks. One of the key themes was to encourage guests to visit Monday-Fridayon the less-crowded days. CM staff sent messages to an average of 12,000 e-subscribers from May-August.Topics included "waterparks open", "River Walk program", and "Dog Swims".9 B-3

Oakland County staff anticipates utilizing these companies to completevarious park projects up to $1 .5 million as stated in the RFP.7. Addison Oaks Park - Potential Conservation Easement: After a conversation in earlyOctober regarding the potential for granting a wetland banking conservation easement tothe MDEQ at Addison Oaks Park, Tamara Jorasky, Grant Coordinator for the MDNR,discussed this potential easement with Jon Mayes and Steve DeBrabander. AddisonOaks Park is encumbered under several grants including Trust Fund Grants, TF0?-030and TF89-002 and Recreation Bond Fund Grants, BF91-025 and BF89-002. By signinga project agreement for these grants the grantee agreed to encumber these lands inperpetuity. If the grantee were to convey a conservation easement over a portion of thepark, it would diminish the value of the land. For this reason, the Attorney General'soffice has advised that such an easement would be contrary to the best interest of theprogram. As a result, MDNR did not approve of the conveyance of a conservationeasement at Addison Oaks Park.8. Addison Oaks Connector Trail: Attached are two articles from the Oakland Pressand a trail map regarding the Addison Oaks Connector Trail.

History of Oaldand County Parks and Recreation's AdaptiveRecreation Progra1nThe parks system initiated its programming for the disabled in 1981 with acountywide Christmas event in Southfield. With the cooperation of a number oflocal recreation departments from the southeastern section of the county theevent became a tradition that continues to this day, more than 30 years later.As a result of the success of the inaugural event, the professional staff from thecounty parks in conjunction with the staff from local recreation agencies met todiscuss how an expanded program could be developed. The Oakland County Parksstaff took the lead in creating this initiative since most recreation agencies couldnot afford to bring on trained staff. The idea of a regional program led by thecounty fit perfectly into the philosophy of the Oakland County Parks andRecreation Commission which was to "complement, not compete" in developingrecreation programs and services.From those initial meetings came a collaboration between the county and thecities, villages and townships that endures today and provides a valuable serviceby Oakland County Parks to the local recreation agencies and to its citizens.Since its inception in 1981, the county's programs have been led by trainedprofessionals and support personnel sensitive and responsive to the needs ofdisabled adults and children, which make Oakland County a better place forfamilies to call home.December 20129 C-6


Methodology of the Adaptive Program AssessJnentReview of Program Attendance from 2007-2012The first phase consisted of an overview of the adaptive program's attendancefigures of the past five years for comparison purposes.I h • ,.,Opinion Survey of Local Recreation ProvidersThe next step of the process was an online opinion survey. The survey wasemailed to every local recreation agency to determine their opinions andthoughts about the county's current Adaptive Recreation Program. The contactletter, list of current adaptive programs and a copy of the survey instrument isincluded in Appendix A of this report. The completed surveys from the localrecreation agencies are included in Appendix B of this report.Pt- S\:. 3In-Depth Interviews with Local Recreation ProvidersTo complement the survey, nine recreation agencies were chosen to take part inan in-depth interview to discuss Oakland County Parks' Adaptive Program. Thesummaries of the interviews are included in Appendix C of this report.The information gathered within the three phases of the project provided thebasis of the recommendations for the future of the program that are discussed inthe Executive Summary of this report.2December 20129 C-7


Executive Sumtnary of the Adaptive Progra1n Assess1nent's~- tij p~Based upon the survey results, interviews with local recreation professionals andreview of the attendance data, the following recommendations are presented forreview and discussion.No v Di ·ecti'lnsAutism Program ExpansionIncreased public awareness of autism has resulted in phone calls to localrecreation agencies from parents looking for resources and programs to provideservices for their family members. This information provides a clear direction forthe development of new programs in the immediate future for autistic childrenand adults.Oakland County ParalympicsA county-wide competition will raise awareness on a regional basis for theCounty's adaptive programs and significantly increase participation in athleticevents for disabled adults and children.Disabled Veterans EventsThe need for programs and events for disabled veterans is growing and the localrecreation professionals would support Oakland County Parks' efforts in thisinitiative.r::~•tirp- t 1 1e \A/Ord Q· +Reviving the Northwest Parks and Recreation Therapeutic CommitteeThe Northwest Parks and Recreation Therapeutic Committee would facilitatecollaboration between Oakland County and local recreation agencies. It wassuggested to have this group reconvene and meet twice a year to share ideas anddiscuss strategies for future program development.Oakland County Program Ads in local Recreation BrochuresThe local recreation agencies offered to insert camera-ready ads promotingdisabled programs from the county into their brochures which are distributeddirectly to their residents at no cost. This would facilitate getting current programinformation to county residents.3December 201 29 C-8


Cultivate the Individual Education Program PersonnelReaching families with disabled children is difficult due to confidentiality issueswith school districts, which does not allow access to contact information.However, the IEP personnel who work closely with the children and families weresuggested as advocates who would support and promote Oakland County Parks'programs to their clients.Train the TrainersFacilitating Staff Training for Local Recreation ProfessionalsOne of the most surprising findings of this assessment process was uncoveringone of the fastest growing and least discussed issues among local recreationproviders, that of the increase of participants with autism, cognitive disorders andbehavioral issues in their recreation programs and the lack of training availablefor their staff to handle this issue. One agency reported that in an after-schoolprogram, 40% of participants were viewed as being one of these participants andthe numbers were growing each year. The facilitating and leading of trainingsessions for local recreation agencies, who then could train their part-time staff,would be viewed as one of the best services that Oakland County Parks couldprovide to its professional peers.49 C-9December 2012

The Oakland Press (theoaklandpress.com). Servi ng Oakland CountyLifeHORSIN' AROUND: Experience horse heaven on earth atOakland County Parks and RecreationFrida y. Novem ber 2. 20 12 4:0 1PM EDTBy SHARON GR EENEIf heaven on earth was blessed with horses, it might look a little like the 1,140 acres of Addison Oaks County Park inLeonard.There are new, wide, non-motorized multi-use trails of crushed limestone meandering through woods and fields ofprairie grasses. Plans are trotting along to include more horse trails in the future. The park vision should be completed in2013.With this in mind, Oakland County Park officials invited a small band of equestrians to "test ride" the new 2.4-mileCon nectar Trail on a gloriously sunny 70 degree afternoon this past Wednesday, Oct. 24."We have learned over the years that it is important to involve recreational users and park staff in the evaluation ofcons !ru ction projects so we can 'fi ne tune' the design," said Jon Noyes, supervisor of planning for Oakland County Parks ."It is important to enlist the help of user groups, like the equestrians to work with us as part of a 'test ride.'"Accord ing to Noyes , the Test Ride Day confirmed the valu e of a number of decisions that were made during design andconstruction including the importance of trail surfacing, slope, drainage and vegetation clearing that maintain good sightlines at trail crossing points. The test ride also indicated a number of areas for im provement including trail signage, theneed for improved transition to the trails of sister organiza tions, and the placement of horse-friendly amenities such asmounting blocks and picket posts.With the addition of the 2.4-mile Connector Trail, equestrians can now have access to 2.1 miles of trail at Addison OaksEas t. plus the 6.4 miles of existing horse trails . The Connector Tra il provides access to the Cranberry Lake Preservewhich has an additional 1.5 m iles or more of trail open to equestrians.Riders were eager to share their points of view. Libby Dwyer of Oakland Township expres sed her approval of the newtrails and gates clearly, saying, "I love the trails and especially li ke the new V-gate access for people who live locally andride. hike or bike in - very generous of Oakland County Parks."Dwyer wa s also interested in an equestrian campground, especially if Bald Mountain opens up."Autumn is best. even after the regular park campground closes. and it would probably get year-round use. It does nothave to be fancy, but have room for big rigs, fire pits, clean outhouse and access to water - and electricity would be nice,and s hewers ."All riders were on board for opening the cabin s at Addison Oaks to equestrians during off peak seasons as they enjoy9 C-16


iding in cooler, bug-free weather.Noyes had some concerns about horse shoes possibly damaging the boardwalk surface over time. Riders mentionedthat it is becoming more popular for horses to be barefoot."Barium shoes are studded and used on asphalt," said Julie Bates of Rochester Hills. ''Horse shoes are generallysmooth and shouldn't really harm the surface. Keep in mind that equestrians wouldn't be using the boardwalks as oftenas other users. Many riders now use rubber boots on their horse's feet; I do."Rose Township resident Katherine Bair was impressed by the boardwalks and the bump-out for allowing people topass."My horse is barefoot," she explained. "Horses walking across a boardwalk should not be a cause for wear."Bair appreciated the easyVshaped pass-through gates, too."We want to have these at Rose Oaks, too, please," she said.She also suggested that horse trail signs be clear.Riders are anxiously waiting for access to Bald Mountain Recreation Area."We've been trying for 25 years to get access from the DNR," explained Dwyer."Visitors have been telling the parks for years that they want more, longer and increasingly diverse trail recreation ," addedNoyes.His goal is for the project to create safe access between Romeo and Lake George roads so visitors can easily movebetween Addison Oaks, the Cranberry lake Preserve and Bald 1\11ountain Recreation Nea.When asked what part of the test ride is her favorite, Bates replied with a broad smile, "The boardwalks were wellplanned outfor two-way traffic with bikers and walkers. I enjoyed watching the maiden crossing of the boardwalks."Bates and her daughter Barb Barber of Oakland Township, trailered in with an extra well-broke horse for non-riderJonathan Schechter, outdoors columnist for the Oakland Press."I certainly gained new knowledge about trail riding, connectivity and the progress being made," co mm ented Schechter.Barber, whose horse was also barefoot, was also impressed by the boardwalk and trails."Wow. OCPR are leading the way for equestrians. They listened. Thank you for working with us (equestrians) so diligentlyto make a perfect trail system."Dwyer agreed, "Most of all, I am impressed that our county parks people are so willing to listen to equestrian needs andconcerns."From Noyes' standpoint, the opportunity for more fo lks in Oakland County to experience the trails on horseback would befife changing.He said, "I see the amazing resources we have and realize that many of our residents will never see or experience them.9 C-17


Can you imagine what a difference it could make in the life of a kid growing up in Pontiac to be able to go into the country,into our parks and see nature from the back of a horse?"It would be horse heaven, indeed.Send horse or farm information. events or comments to sharonlgreene@Jwtmail.com.FYIAddison Oaks County Park, 1480 W.

The Oakland Press (theoaklandpress.com). Serv~ n g Oakland CountyLfeOAKLAND OUTDOORS: Face fears, take a horseback ridethrough Addison Oaks County ParkFriday. Novem ber 2. 2012 3:11 PM EDTBy JONATHAN SCHECHTER1 was a college intern working in the rugged wildlands of Malheur National Wild life Refuge, a mecca for waterfowl insoutheast Oregon, the first time I went for a trail ride.The refuge manager's daughter helped me into the saddle, and we set off for the dusty Center Patrol Road of the BlitzenRiver Valley. Ten minutes later I was bruised and bleeding, nat on my back on rocks of volcanic origin, looking up at herwell-worn chaps and boots.1 dusted myself off as she explained a diamondback rattlers pooked the horse, and he decided it was time to dump thegreenhorn. I survived my six-month internship, wrote a self-guided interpretive plan for refuge visitors as part of mymaster's thesis and grew more knowledgeable on horses and wildlife. developed a passion for trails and pit vipers, too ,but never trial rode again.I regret that.And then last month an invitation came from Oakland County Parks and Recreation Planning Supervisor Jon Noyes .Noyes wanted me to take a closer look at a new connector trail I had hiked previously. No problem, I told him. But therewas a problem: He wanted it done from horseback."A problem," I wrote. "I do not ride."He explained he wanted my perspective from horseback as a non-rider. Noyes hooked me up with the Addison OaksTrail Riders and on that beautiful summer like afternoon 10 days ago, under a cascade of fa lling leaves, I met ninewonderful women and my new companion for the day: Kate, a 19-year-old bay quarter horse.Kate's assignment: Transport the greenhorn columnist. Riding next to me was Kate's owner Barbara Barb er onNewaygo, her 20-year-old Thoroughbred.1 grimaced when a step s tool appeared to assistthe "greenhorn-rides-again-guy" up into the saddle. With one handresting on the saddle horn and a clenched fist squeezing the reins, we set off for the barn at Cranberry Lake TownshipPark on Predmore Road, just under 2.5 miles away. With thoughts of "Hi Ho Silver, away!" I was quickly last in line as ourentourage clippity-clopped th rough Addison Oa ks County Park onto the new connector trail with Addison Oaks East. Theconnector is a well-designed, gently curving eight-foot wide pathway of crushed gravel and grassy shoulders th at isdesigned to accommodate hikers , mountain bikers and equestrians.Surveys show trails are the most desired amenity in the Oakland County Park system. Oakland County Parks CEO Dan9 C-20


Stencil em ph a sized earlier that the trail was part of "a collaborative effort with multiple agencies and speaks about thecommitment to future connectivity via trails in Oakland County."My eques Irian companions were thrilled that Oakland County looked at them as valued components of that use andsolicited their suggestions in multi-use trail development. As we rode, Barber emphasized, "Oakland County Parkslistened to our concerns, followed through and is leading the way for equestrians."Every time I hike a trail, I make new discoveries that add to personal richness. But this time, it was a different sort ofrichness. I was seeing and feeling a trail from an entirely new perspective- horseback. I quickly realized that, althoughmy companion riders were using a trail in a way that many do not and some hikers have opposed, we were kindredspirits. They, too, loved falling leaves and a soaring hawk over the meadow. As we trotted over a brand new, welldesigned, horse-friendly connector bridge over a wetland, I finally relaxed and loved the view from horseback ..AJthough nos igns were posted about proper trail courtesy and etiquette, two occurrences caught my attention. Just aswe were about to e>dt Addison Oaks East through a V-shaped gate and cross Romeo Road to enter Cranberry Lake, twobow-hunters approached. The hunters stepped to the side and talked gently to the horses as we passed. A few minuteslater a cyclist pulled way off trail and motioned us on. Basic courtesy was spontaneous with cyclists yielding to hikers,horses and hikers yielding to horses. My equestrian companions thanked them for the courtesy. Actions like that buildbonds.Normally, when I am hiking in a group, I find myself in the pied-piper position gabbing away about wildlife, plants andglacial history. This time, being the greenhorn and the slowest moving object on the trail -excluding a late season turtle-I remained at the tail end under the watchful eye of Barb Barber and at times libby Dwyer, a seasoned rider on Zarro,her beautiful12-year-old American Paint Horse.Dwyer expressed lhe essence of trail riding with poignant comments: "It's the ability to explore the beauty of this worldfrom the back of trusted friend," really hit home. And I could not help but smile as she reminded me of"the sociality ofsharing the sport you love with friends and the adventure of not knowing what to expect around the next bend."And 1 discovered that flocks of turkey and sometimes deer will walk around a horse.Granted, I was not able to flip over logs to look for salamanders, or kneel to examine acorns. but I could gaze into thewoodlands in most pleasurable ways I have never experienced. And after reaching the barn,! no longer felt like a totalgreenhorn. /lJ. that moment, I knew that my companion equestrians love trails and parks and the wide open spaces, farmlands and woodlands and work just as hard in the long-desired struggle for connectivity between parks by trails ashikers as cyclists. Together we are stronger in th e continuing efforts to expand trails in our beautiful county. Together wecan do it.We just need to remember a simple concept for shared use passage: Respect.Jonathan Schechter's column appears on Sundays. Look for his Earth Almanacs blog:www.earthsalmanac.blogspot.com. Twitter@OaklandNature. Email Oaknature@aol.com.FYIFinishing touches are being added to the Addison Oaks Connector Trail as it remains open for public use. A grandopening celebration will be held on May I, 2013 that will help spread the message of proper trail etiquette for hiking,mountain biking and equestrians.
