General Management Plan/Environmental Assessment
Tumacácori National Historical Park is developing a new general management plan, which will guide management of the park for the next 15 to 20 years. Your participation in this process and comments are important to us. The draft general management plan is now available for your review. An electronic copy of the plan can be found at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/tumagmp. A very limited number of hard copies or compact discs of the plan are also available upon request by contacting me at 520-398-2341 ext. 52.
The public comment period on the general management plan is 45 days, from February 20 – April 5, 2013. Please see the park website for details on how to comment: http://www.nps.gov/tuma/parkmgmt/general-management-plan.htm.
