Draft Transportation Plan/Environmental Impact Statement
Acadia National Park's Draft Transportation Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is available for public review and comment beginning on Thursday, April 26. The public will have until June 26th, to provide comments. Public meetings will be held on Mount Desert Island and on the Schoodic Peninsula. Public information sessions at three local libraries are scheduled as well as a virtual online session.
The Acadia National Park Draft Transportation Plan and EIS identifies a range of transportation and visitor use management strategies including a preferred alternative. The Draft Transportation Plan seeks to determine ways to provide safe and efficient transportation for visitors while ensuring the protection of park resources and values. The alternatives are intended to address the quality of the visitor experience associated with growth in visitation. These alternatives were developed from public comments during public comment periods in 2015 and 2017.
