Each state is required to develop a SCORP at least every five years. This is a requirement of the Land and Water Conservation Fund Act (LWCF) of 1965. The intent of the SCORP is to justify state and federal expenditures for outdoor recreation acquisition and development projects.
The following are included in a SCORP:
An evaluation of the supply and demand for outdoor recreation resources and facilities.
An opportunity for public participation.
An implementation program that identifies strategies, priorities, and actions.
The 2010-2014 SCORP identified 4 statewide priorities:
- Promote the livability of all communities through health and fitness.
- Enhance economic vitality.
- Properly use and conserve natural resources.
- Develop a statewide trail network that facilitates recreation, transportation, and healthy lifestyles.
