DescriptionThe huge population increases anticipated over the next century make the problem of identifying and conserving open space critical. While the Recreation Opportunity Spectrum is undoubtedly the most sophisticated recreation inventory system established to date, it was designed for, and is best suited to, the large tracts of public lands in the western U.S, In this paper, we detail the results of a task force that sought to extend the original ROS to include both federal and state lands planning in the Northeast, using Vermont as an example.
