Every five years, states are required to update their Statewide Comprehensive Outdoor Recreation Plan (SCORP).
The SCORP is an important statewide planning document that identifies regional and statewide outdoor recreation needs and opportunities. It also sets a collective strategy for statewide partners to work together to enhance the delivery of outdoor recreation services to citizens.
Creating this document requires plenty of effective public engagement.
A big task in normal times made all the more difficult because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
H+W helped the University of Alabama’s Center for Economic Development design and create an online platform and workshops to empower engagement, facilitate conversation and collect input.
Once the data was crunched we supported UACED with design and layout of the SCORP document.
We are also providing ongoing support to aid the rollout via a website and graphic design, aimed at sharing the outdoor recreation stories and opportunities emerging throughout Alabama.
