The Role of Information

This strategic plan is based on the best information available at the time of writing. Some of it, however, is limited or incomplete.

Continued efforts are needed to improve the quality of information for key economic, social and environmental values.

Successful implementation of a strategic plan depends on blending its management direction with the best local information that is available.

Individuals or organizations with local land use or resource information are encouraged to make it available in a timely and usable manner. It can then be incorporated into future planning, decisionmaking, and resource development.

Over time, scientific information may indicate that management goals, objectives, or measures of success will need to change. When this occurs, proposed changes will be reviewed in light of the plan’s basic purpose. Where appropriate, the plan will be amended (see Part 5).
