Description Millage Replacement and Increase to Improve, Operate, and Maintain Parks, Open Space Areas, Trails, and Recreation Activities in
Oakland County, Michigan

The Oakland County Parks System includes 7000 acres and 80 miles of trails preserving and protecting the environment. There are 13
Oakland County Parks and recreational activities throughout the County including campgrounds, dog parks, golf courses, water parks, and
mobile recreation units.

To continue to provide revenue to the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission, shall the current millage, which has been reduced
by required rollback, be replaced and increased to .35 mills for 10 years from 2020 to 2029? The .35 mills is equal to 35 cents per $1,000.00
of taxable value. The millage, if approved and levied, will generate approximately $22,026,860.00 in 2020. The purpose of the millage is to
improve, operate, and maintain parks, open space and water areas, trails, and recreation facilities; to allow for free day-use park admission
for seniors (62 and over), military, veterans, and residents with permanent disabilities; to expand trails; to enhance local recreation
programs; and to increase environmental conservation and recreation activities. Revenue from this millage will be disbursed only to the
County of Oakland to be used solely for the purpose of funding the Oakland County Parks and Recreation Commission with external audits
and oversight by the Oakland County Board of Commissioners.
