Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation (LPPRP) Plans
The LPPRPs are comprehensive planning documents that are used by the counties and Baltimore City as an opportunity to collect and evaluate parks, recreation, and land preservation data. These plans are meant to identify the rates of public participation in specific types of recreation and the availability of those facilities. There is special emphasis placed on the proximity of park facilities to where people live and especially to underserved communities.
Natural Resources Article § 5-905 (b)(2) requires that each county and Baltimore City submit a Land Preservation, Parks, and Recreation Plan every five years to the Departments of Natural Resources and Planning for joint approval. This is a prerequisite for county participation in Program Open Space. Per statute [(§ 5-905 (b)(2)], the Department of Natural Resources shall provide the legislators the opportunity to review and comment on the Plans.
