Foundation Document


A Foundation Document is a statement of a national park unit's purpose and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. In this capacity, the Foundation Document will reestablish the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions at Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and will serve as the first step for considering the future planning and study needs for the park.

Your voice is important to us. We invite you to play a role in charting the future of the park by sharing your thoughts on what is most important about Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve, and to help identify the most pressing threats and greatest opportunities at the park.

We ask that you read and reflect on the questions below so that we may take your thoughts into consideration as we develop a Foundation Document. In your responses, please identify which park unit to which your comment applies, as applicable. The Jean Lafitte National Historical Park and Preserve units are the French Quarter Visitor Center, Chalmette Battlefield and Chalmette National Cemetery, Barataria Preserve, Acadian Cultural Center, Wetlands Acadian Cultural Center, and Prairie Acadian Culture Center. Your feedback will be most helpful if received before December 4, 2013.

Sincerely,
Lance Hatten, Superintendent
