The North Dakota Parks and Recreation Department (NDPRD) is seeking input on the 2018-2022 North Dakota State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP). Developed every five years, the SCORP is a guide for managing and developing North Dakota’s non-consumptive outdoor recreation base. The public is invited to review the SCORP and provide comments by 5 p.m. CDT on June 5.
The SCORP is based on research conducted this year. North Dakota households and public outdoor recreation providers were surveyed to determine the demand for and supply of non-consumptive outdoor recreation in the state. Based on the research results, funding priorities for outdoor recreation parks and facilities at the state and regional level were established as part of the SCORP recommendations. The goal is to enhance outdoor recreation across the state by educating and engaging North Dakotans to ensure diverse, accessible and affordable outdoor recreation opportunities are available to citizens and visitors.
North Dakotans interested in reviewing and commenting on the SCORP should go to www.parkrec. nd.gov.
