Environmental Assessment for Fire Management Including Use of Prescribed Fire at CVNP

The National Park Service (NPS) is considering actions at Cuyahoga Valley National Park (park) to manage wildland fire and to use prescribed fire. The purposes of the project would be to protect human health and safety; protect historic and non-historic structures; and enhance habitat for native plants and wildlife.

The environmental assessment (EA) for the project describes the effects of NPS actions on the human environment and provides an opportunity for the public to comment on the project in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969, Council on Environmental Quality regulations (Title 40 Code of Federal Regulations [CFR] Part 1500 et sequentia), and other applicable laws, regulations, and policies. The project EA also assesses the effects of fire management at th epark on historic properties in accordance with Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act.

Following public and agency review, the Director of the Midwest Region of the NPS will make a determination concerning whether or not the project would result in significant impacts on the human environment. If the project would not significantly impact the human environment, the Regional Director will issue a "Finding of No Significant Impact". If the project would significantly impact the human environment, the Regional Director will issue a "Notice of Intent" to prepare an environmental impact statement.
