Part 4: Planning, Action & Nomination

Why Prepare A Corridor Management Plan?

A corridor management plan is not just another box to check off, if you are preparing a byway’s nomination. A corridor management plan is a living document that reflects the community’s plans and comprehensive strategies to preserve, enhance, promote and sustain the byway. Your corridor management plan plays a crucial role in making your vision for your scenic byway become a reality.

If you are considering preparing a nomination for national designation to the National Scenic Byways Program, a corridor management plan is a mandatory part of submission. Your corridor management plan will become the cornerstone of your application.

State, Indian tribe and Federal lands scenic byway programs may also require development of a corridor management plan for designation. Check with your respective scenic byway coordinator for specific application requirements.
