The 2016 update to Sussex County’s Open Space and Recreation Plan assesses existing public lands and open space to prioritize and implement land stewardship and preservation initiatives.  This GIS mapping and modeling project identifies strategic opportunities to enhance the water resource benefits to the land, and offers a targeted, site specific action program for acquisition and management.  Projects are identified to protect water resources, expand existing parklands, natural areas and trails in the county.  Using updated mapping and technology tools, the Plan Update inventories currently protected open space and developed a series of maps to identify priority areas for conservation and restoration built upon scientifically based water quality metrics and local priorities for land protection. The mapping analysis offers the County the ability to analyze the properties based on unique water resources and/or water resource attributes.

 Approved for APA CM 1.25.
