There is a new 5 year plan being updated by the DEEP Parks and Rec folks that includes the recreational management of state properties. This is a chance for all to provide comments on uses, so birders should take the opportunity to provide comments in order to  make sure birding interests are considered.

Connecticut Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan


The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) is a planning document that identifies outdoor recreation issues of statewide significance and evaluates the supply of and the demand for outdoor recreation resources and facilities in Connecticut.  The SCORP provides unified guidance to state and municipal officials as they develop and expand outdoor recreation opportunities for their respective constituents.

In addition to its value as a planning document, the completion of a SCORP also satisfies a requirement of the federally administered Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF), which then makes Connecticut eligible to receive its annual apportionment from the LWCF State and Municipal Assistance Program.  Apportionments from the LWCF can be used by the state and its municipalities to acquire new land for outdoor recreation and conservation, and to construct new outdoor recreational facilities.
