How is a Management Plan Developed?
Developing a comprehensive management plan can take anywhere from 12 to 24 months. Extensive input is sought from visitors, community stakeholders, other state agencies and Department of Natural Resources staff. Careful consideration goes into each plan. The steps are:
Phase One: Establishing the Park's Purpose and Significance
General management plan developed with 20-year goal for use.
Careful examination of the parameters of the DNR/PRB Missions.
Review of directives of law, policies, procedures, mandates, agreements and understandings that will affect the use of the park.
Review and consideration of the natural, historical, cultural and educational resources available
Collection of input from stakeholders and visitors.
Phase Two: Long-Range (10 year) Action Plan (pending)
Phase Three: Five-Year Action Plan (pending)
Phase Four: Annual Performance Plan and Report (pending)
