SCORP-The Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan.
Carlisle, Robert L.
The creation and meaning of a comprehensive outdoor recreation plan for the state of Texas is the topic of this address presented to the Department of Recreation and Parks, Texas A & M University, in February, 1968. Overall, the plan is concerned with any and all participation in leisure time activities conducted in an out-of-doors setting, rather than any single facet of recreation. Chronological aspects of development are traced following passage of the "Land and Water Conservation Fund Act of 1965." Supply, demand, needs, and action are described as components of the plan together with an assessment of how these components are presently being completed by the State. Possible uses and implications of such a plan are also considered within its realm as a reliable guide to the orderly and efficient acquisition and development of outdoor recreation resources in Texas.
