About the ​Planning Process

This 2019-2023 SCORP reflects the shared vision and commitment of Colorado outdoor recreation partners to advance strategies that ensure all people can easily connect to Colorado's outdoors.

This plan provides the framework to strategically allocate LWCF dollars (combined with investments from other federal, state, local and private funding programs) and to support collaborations with outdoor recreation parnters that promote both recreational enjoyment and thoughtful conservation of Colorado’s outdoor resources.

To develop Colorado’s 2019 SCORP, CPW gathered data to better understand emerging outdoor recreation trends, issues, and opportunities through statewide surveys of the general public and land managers. Staff then worked for over a year actively engaging a diverse group of partners and stakeholders to reflect on evolving outdoor recreation issues and to develop the top priorities and shared strategies outlined in this 5-year plan.
