Statewide Recreation Plan
What is SCORP?
The Maine State Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP) process and ultimately the final approved plan qualify Maine to receive federal Land and Water Conservation Funds. Additionally, the Maine SCORP satisfies state legislative requirements and helps guide Bureau decision making.
Maine's SCORP identifies the demand for and supply of outdoor recreation areas and facilities based on available information, and discusses outdoor recreation issues of statewide importance based on public and focus group comment. The plan's Implementation Program suggests broad priorities for expenditure of LWCF dollars in Maine.
