Public meeting for input on Statewide Recreation Plan

I can't help but think this might be another opportunity to push thinking forward on how recreation and transportation can be integrated. We don't have a statewide system of trails that can be used for bike travel, but perhaps we should.

This is from Tim Wachtel, SPAR Planner, and regular ABetterShreveport contributor:

There will be a public forum for input into the Louisiana Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan update:
Tuesday November 18, 2008
6:00 - 8:00 pm
Southern Hills Park Community Center (near the pool)
1002 Bert Kouns Loop, Shreveport
The SCORP is intended to help guide the development of the State's outdoor recreation resources for the next five years. It is a requirement for the state and cities to get certain federal recreation funds, most notably grants from the Land & Water Conservation Fund (L&WCF).
I wish that I could send you a link to the current plan, but I can't find one. Here's a link to the State Park web site that has a way that you can fill out a user survey if you can't make the meeting:
Please feel free to let anyone who might be interested know about the meeting and the survey site.
