The Forest Service proposes additions to FSH 2309.13 Code Field Issuances that are currently set out in FSM 2332 (Publically Managed Recreation Opportunities). The new chapter 50 will govern operation and maintenance of developed recreation sites. Chapter 50 was developed to ensure that recreation sites and their constructed features are serviceable and in good repair throughout their designed service life.  Developed recreation sites are areas on National Forest System lands that contain infrastructure or amenities for public enjoyment and resource protection. Current developed recreation directives for operation and maintenance were last finalized in the 1990s and the early 2000s.
