Outdoor Recreation and Conservation Vision Plan Leadership
A Task Force of local stakeholders across recreation and conservation provide perspective, expertise, and leadership in the planning process. The PPORA Advisory Council serves as an additional layer of perspective and is consulted quarterly. We also established two key partnerships for executing the first phase: the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) and the Colorado Tourism Office. We have engaged in the professional planning services of local consultants, N.E.S. Inc., to provide strategic support and expertise in this important planning process. During the second phase, a significant emphasis is on public engagement to learn from diverse perspectives and experiences to inform the process and help flesh out conservation and recreation priorities. We have engaged Bachman PR to assist in this process.
Planning such as this is dynamic! Additional expertise and perspectives will be sought throughout the process to ensure voices across the region are heard and included in this planning initiative.
