Moose-Wilson Corridor Comprehensive Management Plan
The National Park Service (NPS) is continuing a comprehensive planning effort for the Moose-Wilson corridor in Grand Teton National Park. The public was asked to share their thoughts, concerns, and vision for the future of the Moose-Wilson corridor between December 6, 2013 and February 6, 2014.
To inform the public of the scoping process, a newsletter describing the context for the plan and how to comment was distributed. This newsletter proved a general overview of the planning schedule and data collection efforts, provided background on issues and opportunities within the project area, and described the foundational elements that will guide planning and management.
During the public scoping period, a total of 1,007 individual correspondences were received. Comments were provided through the PEPC website, during a January 14, 2014 public open house, in hand-written comment cards and letters delivered to the park.
Comments have been analyzed and summarized in a public scoping report. This report can be found through the 'Document List' tab on this webpage.
Developing a comprehensive management plan for the Moose-Wilson corridor is critical to ensure protection of key resources, values and visitor experiences. Your comments have been instrumental in developing a suite of management options. NPS staff is currently developing a range of draft alternatives for the corridor. The public will be asked to provide thoughts and comments on these draft alternatives later this year.
Thank you for your continued interest and support. I look forward to hearing from you in the future.
