Virginia Outdoors Plan

Virginia’s Outdoors Plan (click here for more information) will be the subject of a public meeting on September 7, 10 a.m., at Northern Virginia Regional Commission, 3060 Williams Drive, Suite 510, Fairfax 22031.  This is the state’s plan for “land conservation, outdoor recreation and open-space planning.”  The state’s website says that the “plan’s foundation is the Virginia Outdoors Demand Survey,” which appears to be focused on recreation.  DCR and Northern Virginia planning staff will review projects of the past year and forthcoming projects.  These will help inform next year’s update of the plan.  In 2017, DCR will have three public meetings on a draft plan.  For information, contact  Janit Llewellyn Allen, Programs Planner, Department of Conservation and Recreation,, 804-786-0887.
