Draft General Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement - June 2010

This document examines four alternatives for managing the national historic site for the next 15 to 20 years. It also analyzes the impacts of implementing each of the alternatives. The "no action" alternative, alternative 1, describes the existing national historic site management and serves as a basis for comparison in evaluating the other alternatives.

"Alternative 2, A Retreat From Modern Life in the Heart of the City," the NPS preferred alternative, focuses on rehabilitating the historic landscape to offer visitors a strong sense of the neighborhood as Lincoln knew it.

"Alternative 3, Life and Work in a Rehabilitated Lincoln-era Urban Landscape," focuses on interpreting and rehabilitating the neighborhood as Lincoln knew it along the entire length of Eighth Street.

Under "Alternative 4, Self-discovery of the Lincoln-era Landscape," the national historic site management would focus on rehabilitating the landscape to provide visual cues of what was present during Lincoln's time, offering visitors a sense of self-discovery.
