Public meeting on statewide outdoor recreation plan to be held May 30 in Portland
May 23, 2013
 
Portland, OR - The Oregon Parks and Recreation Department (OPRD) will take comments on the draft 2013-2017 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) at a public meeting to be held Thursday, May 30 from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Tryon Creek State Natural Area Visitor Center (located at 11321 SW Terwilliger Blvd. in Portland).
 
States are required to develop SCORPs to be eligible for matching grants from the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund program. In addition to satisfying grant requirements, the plan's purpose is to guide recreation providers such as federal, state, and local units of government, as well as the private sector, in making policy and planning decisions.
 
The plan is also used to develop criteria for OPRD-administered grant programs and recommendations for state park system operations, administration, planning, and recreation programs.
 
The SCORP document, entitled Ensuring Oregon's Outdoor Legacy, is available for review in advance of the meeting online at http://tinyurl.com/cjeh3gu. OPRD will accept comments on the draft until May 31; they can be submitted online or via email to scorp.comments@state.or.us. Written comments can be sent Attn: Terry Bergerson to Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, 725 Summer Street NE Suite C, Salem, OR 97301-127.
