Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP)

   General Information

What is the Land Preservation, Parks and Recreation Plan (LPPRP)?
Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks is in the process of updating its 2006 Land Preservation, Parks & Recreation Plan (LPPRP). The LPPRP is a countywide, long range master plan for land preservation, park acquisition and facility development. Effective July 1, 2005, the State of Maryland required all local jurisdictions to submit an updated Plan every six years. This round of LPPRP’s is intended to provide a common benchmark to assist the State’s evaluation of each county’s land preservation and recreation programs and thereby ensure good return on public investment. The local plans support the State’s planning visions and qualify local governments for State Program Open Space (POS) funds to acquire land and develop recreation facilities. 
The Plan will focus on the following three elements:
 
  • Recreation and parks
  • Agricultural land preservation
  • Natural resource conservation



This 2013 plan will be prepared by Anne Arundel County Department of Recreation and Parks with the assistance of the Watershed, Ecosystem and Restoration Services Division of the Department of Public Works and the Office of Planning and Zoning. The Plan will be prepared in accordance with guidelines developed in 2010 by the Maryland Department of Planning and the Department of Natural Resources.  The 2013 Land Preservation Parks and Recreation plan will also include land preservation and park initiatives provided by the City of Annapolis and the Town of Highland Beach.

2013 Final Draft Land Preservation, Parks & Recreation Plan (LPPRP)
A critical component of the Land Preservation Parks and Recreation Plan is public input.  The County will use a number of methods to gauge public opinion on recreation and land preservation needs:
  • Public Meetings were held on the following dates:
    • West Planning Area - October 18, 2011 at Arundel High School
    • Southern Planning Area - October 26, 2011 at Central Middle School
    • Eastern Planning Area - November 2, 2011 at Severna Park Middle School
    • Northern Planning Area - November 9, 2011 at North County High School
  • Statewide survey of public participation in recreation activities
  • 2010 Survey conducted by the Department of Recreation and Parks
The 2013 plan will also rely upon the recommendations in the Small Area Plan, the 2006 Land Preservation, Parks & Recreation Plans and the Greenways Master Plan. Follow the links to those Plans in Quick Links box (upper right).
