Pinnacles National Monument General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment
It is with great pleasure that we submit to you the Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment of Pinnacles National Monument (GMP/EA). When completed, this plan will guide our management of the monument with a 15-20 year vision for its operation and protection.
However, before the GMP/EA can be completed, it is important that we receive comments on this draft. Please take the time to review the draft and provide us with any comments you may have.
The Draft General Management Plan offers four alternative approaches to public use and enjoyment of the monument, protection of natural and cultural resources, and the overall management of this unique unit of the National Park System. The environmental consequences section of the document provides an understanding of the effect each alternative may have on the environment.
This plan represents your involvement and input into planning processes. The preferred alternative addresses concepts many of you proposed or supported.
Your input into this plan is important and will make it a better guide for the monument's future. You are invited to attend public meetings where you can discuss with the planning team any questions you may have as well as provide public comments. Please see the meeting times and locations below.
You can download the Draft GMP/EA, submit comments, and receive updates on the GMP/EA on this website. Please follow the "Open For Comment" link on the left to submit your comments electronically. The public comment period for this draft GMP/EA will extend through January 11, 2013.
If you choose not to submit comments online, please send your written comments to:
