What is the master plan?

The master plan is a long-term plan to guide future resource management and recreational uses along the corridor. In the planning for the corridor, the planning team is taking a comprehensive look at natural, scenic and cultural resource conditions; corridor management needs; outdoor recreation trends in the region; community partnerships; and any related ideas and concerns identified through public input.
