GFP Commission Seeking Input on Land Purchasing Guidelines
PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission is seeking input on proposed land acquisition priorities and guidelines through Aug. 3, 2016.
"The purpose of this document is to help guide our agency and the GFP Commission in conducting land acquisitions over the next decade," stated Kelly Hepler, GFP Secretary. "While the current priorities and guidelines are based on a traditional approach, we are seeking input from hunters, anglers, and state park and recreation land users to help shape future land acquisition priorities."
Lands administered by GFP provide South Dakota residents and visitors with myriad hunting, fishing, boating, camping and other outdoor recreational opportunities, as well as places to enjoy wildlife and the beauty of the South Dakota landscape.
This document sets forth GFP acquisition priorities and details the guiding principles by which land purchases are conducted. To view the document, please visit gfp.sd.gov/land-acquisition.pdf. Please email comments and feedback to Paul.Coughlin@state.sd.us.
