The Sustainable Ozarks Partnership (SOP) focuses on the four county (Laclede, Phelps, Pulaski, and Texas) region directly surrounding Fort Leonard Wood. We are a nonprofit organization that was founded in 2012, as a result of the Initial Integrated Strategic Sustainability Plan (ISSP). The plan created six long-term strategic goals; one of the goals called for full and effective community engagement. The SOP has put together a strategic plan with our own goals that allow us to focus on attaining the community engagement goal set forth by the ISSP.
