A Milford Township State Park Levy proposal was on the November 6, 2012 election ballot in Oakland County, which is in Michigan, where it was defeated.

If approved, this proposal would have authorized the levy of an up to .25 mills (25 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation) for four years and, after, a .025 mills (2.5 cents per $1,000 assessed valuation) for an additional sixteen years in order to pay for the construction, operation, and maintenance of a community skate park. $190,521 is the estimated first year revenue from this levy.[1]
