ate a long-term vision for visitor experience, facility development, resource conservation, and management. The plan will be developed with extensive input from the public and government agencies. Research will be conducted to identify opportunities, constraints and public opinion about preferred recreation experiences. Guiding statements will be defined to assure that proposed actions support the SRA purpose, significance, constraints, desired visitor experience, and optimal resource conditions. Photography, maps and designs will be used to illustrate current conditions and solutions.
NDPRD staff will work closely with a consulting team led by Great Outdoors Consultants (GOC) to create the master plan. Robert Peccia and Associates, Red Canoe LLC, and the National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) are assisting the GOC team with various aspects of the master plan. The GOC team has extensive experience in planning and designing public lands for outdoor recreation and resource conservation.
