Public Comment Sought on SCORP

LINCOLN – The public is invited to review and comment on the 2016-2020 Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP): A Guide to an Active Nebraska.

This plan assesses the supply and demand of outdoor recreational facilities in the state. It gives Nebraska the direction and priorities necessary for strong outdoor recreation programs for all levels of government and the private sector. The plan addresses and provides solutions to issues in Nebraska regarding recreation.

The plan is a requirement from the National Park Service to qualify for Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) grant funds for communities within the state. The LWCF program has provided more than $46 million in funds for outdoor recreation facilities in Nebraska since 1964.
