Virginia Outdoors Plan Under Review in 2016-17; Public Meetings Held August-December 2016

In 2016-17, the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) is working with Virginia’s planning district commissions and regional councils to review outdoor recreation and land conservation initiatives related to the Virginia Outdoors Plan.  The Outdoors Plan is  a comprehensive blueprint for acquisition, development, and management of outdoor recreation and open space resources.  The first plan was developed in 1966; the most recent update, the 11th, was done in 2013.  From August to December 2016, the DCR held a series of 21 public meetings on the plan, in each region of the Commonwealth.  More information on the Outdoors Plan is available online at http://www.dcr.virginia.gov/recreational_planning/vop.shtml.
