Open Space and Recreation Plans are a tool through which a community plans for the future of its conservation and recreation resources.   OSRPs are informed by a thorough public participation process and reflect the needs of its community members.  The plans are reviewed and approved by the Commonwealth to ensure that they conform to the OSRP requirements.  When a community has an approved OSRP, it becomes eligible for DCS grant programs for up to seven years.  Find out more about the state's process
