From the Virginia DCR website:
“The Virginia Outdoors Plan is the state’s official document regarding land conservation, outdoor recreation and open space planning. It helps all levels of the public and private sectors meet needs pertaining to those issues. The plan provides guidance for the protection of lands through actions of the Virginia Land Conservation Foundation (VLCF), and the plan is required in order for Virginia to take part in the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF) program. The 2007 edition of the Virginia Outdoors Plan (VOP) is the ninth written in accordance with §10.1-200 of the Code of Virginia.
Beginning in December, planners with the Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation will conduct meetings across the state to gather public input for the 2013 Virginia Outdoors Plan. Meetings will be held at 3 and 7 p.m. on each of the dates listed below. DCR also will accept written comments. Email comments to [email protected] or mail them to:
