Outdoor Recreation Study
In 2018 we received a federal grant to create an outdoor recreation study that will guide the growth and expansion of outdoor recreation in our region. The study has two phases.
Phase One: Outdoor Recreation Economic Impact Analysis
The first phase involved quantifying the value of outdoor recreation in the FVRD. This phase is complete and the final report was released in November 2020.
Phase Two: Outdoor Recreation Management Plan
The second phase involves creating an Outdoor Recreation Management Plan (ORMP) to guide the growth and expansion of outdoor recreation in our region. This plan will separate the FVRD into 17 recreation management units (RMUs), and identify the specific activities, challenges, opportunities, and management recommendations for each RMU.
The ORMP is currently being drafted. Once ready, it will be shared on this page to allow the public to provide feedback before the plan is finalized.
