A corridor management plan (CMP) is a grassroots-level community planning document that covers the entire scenic roads.
A CMP is an inventory of the characteristics, features, resources and special qualities of the roadway. The document consists of the following components that, together, provide for the conservation and enhancement of the roadway's intrinsic qualities while promoting tourism and economic development, all for the users' enjoyment of the roadway.
- Physical description
- Intrinsic qualities
- Visitor needs and expectations
- Marketing and promotion
- People's involvement and responsibilities
In addition, the FHWA requires specific elements that must be in any CMP.
The CMP must be completed as part of nominating a scenic road for national designation.
