Public Land Solutions is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing comprehensive recreation planning and stakeholder coordination to support effective and sustainable public land solutions.
HOW WE DO IT
Comprehensive Recreation Audit & Analysis
Public Land Solutions supports the next generation of land use plans through experience-based recreation planning. By understanding and planning for diverse outdoor experiences, as opposed to simply labeling landscapes, PLS works to create viable plans that maximize recreation assets in conjunction with resource extraction and conservation goals.
Creating Efficient Protocols to Coordinate Stakeholders
We use a comprehensive and efficient needs assessment system to coordinate stakeholders and optimize outcomes. The current public comment system produces a vast amount of data, which land managers rarely have the resources to effectively analyze. More capacity is required to synthesize stakeholder needs. We bring professional support to this process, resulting in cohesive land use proposals that efficiently incorporate the views of a broad range of stakeholders.
Templates for Public-Private Partnerships
These partnerships bring much needed funding and expertise to protect natural areas and outdoor experiences. $20,000 from a local corporation was combined with $20,000 from Utah State Parks to build 15 miles of biking and hiking trails in Dead Horse State Park. Revenues for the park increased 43% over 36 months.
Creating Recreation Assets
Public Land Solutions works with local communities to identify opportunities for protecting, enhancing, and creating recreation assets.
