STUDY PROCESS

The NPS study team will evaluate important natural and historic places of Rota. If the area is found to meet the criteria, the study team will consider alternative ways that local, CNMI, federal, and private entities can further protect and interpret Rota's important places. These alternatives will include the option of continuing current management ("no action" alternative). These alternatives will be developed with input from local stakeholders and officials and explore a range of opportunities and management strategies.
During the study process, the NPS will explore many topics including: significance of Rota's resources, preservation and recognition of prehistoric and historic sites; interpretation of the Chamorro culture, including the relation of traditional Chamorro life to natural resources; protection of native limestone forests; and the needs of the local community.

  NATIONAL PARK CRITERIA

For an area to be recommended as an addition to the national park system, it must meet all of the following criteria, established by the 1998 National Parks Omnibus Management Act:
-Contain nationally significant natural and/or cultural resources.
-Represent a natural or cultural resource that is not already adequately represented in the national park system or is not comparably represented and protected for public enjoyment by another land-managing entity.
-Must be (1) of sufficient size and appropriate configuration to ensure long-term protection of the resources and visitor enjoyment, and (2) capable of efficient administration by the National Park Service at a reasonable cost; important feasibility factors include landownership, acquisition costs, life cycle maintenance costs, access, threats to the resource, and staff or development requirements.
-Direct NPS management must be determined to be clearly superior to other management approaches.
