Great Falls Park Final General Management Plan/EIS

This GMP/EIS describes and analyzes two alternatives for managing Great Falls Park. Alternative A, the continuation of current conditions, and Alternative B, the Preferred Alternative, which describes proposed practices that would balance the protection of natural and cultural resources with the provision of recreational opportunities for the visitors. The approved plan will help managers make decisions about managing cultural and natural resources, visitation, recreation and development for the next 10-15 years. The plan provides the foundation for decision making and the preparation of specific resource and recreational plans for the park. The EIS documents potential effects that the GMP will have on environmental resources, in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA).

The Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) provides for a 30 day comment period once the plan has been distributed to the public and a notice has been published in the Federal Register by EPA. At that time you may provide your comments on this site or by mail to the Superintendent
