The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public input on the draft Community Access Plan for Cuyahoga Valley National Park. After incorporating public comments on this draft, the park will finalize the plan and identify a preferred option. The park will then undertake an environmental compliance process prior to implementation of any actions in this plan. We rely on your feedback to help guide our stewardship, so please take an active role and offer your unique perspective on the vision and changes that are being proposed at this time.
