The Washington State Recreation and Conservation Office (RCO) is revising the state’s strategic plan for outdoor recreation and we’d really like your thoughts about what’s important to include.
The state’s outdoor recreation strategic plan, called the State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP), needs to be updated every 5 years to maintain our ability to receive federal funding from the Land and Water Conservation Fund. RCO uses these federal dollars for grants to local communities to build parks and trails, and conserve wildlife habitat.
The SCORP addresses the future recreation needs of our residents and helps guide decisions about what projects to fund.
Your input is crucial to understanding what’s important to include in the plan. To make it easy to give us your opinions, we created the ‘SCORP Town Hall’ Web site at (www.scorpwa.wordpress.com
) where you can quickly share your views.
Please help us spread the word and let your members know about this opportunity through your distribution lists, newsletter, or Web site. Everyone who is interested in recreation should have an opportunity to participate.
Thanks for your help in planning for the future of outdoor recreation in Washington!
