The public has an opportunity to review and comment on the draft Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan. The plan provides guidance to public outdoor recreation policy and planning decisions and is used in allocating recreation-related grants administered by the Department of Natural Resources.
This report is used to help make grant funding decisions for programs like the Knowles-Nelson stewardship program, Land and Water Conservation funding, and the Rec Trails program.
People can review the plan and the appendices on the DNR website. In addition to the [December 19 Madison] open house, people can also comment on the plan through a public input form on the SCORP page of the DNR website. The form is intended to gather perspectives about the draft SCORP and ideas people may have to improve the document. People can provide input on an online questionnaire, or can download a form and mail it in. Comments, either online or hardcopy, are due by Jan. 4, 2019.
