Assateague Island National Seashore DGMP/EIS
The National Park Service (NPS) is pleased to present the Draft General Management Plan / Environmental Impact Statement (Draft GMP/EIS) for Assateague Island National Seashore for your review and comment.
Assateague Island National Seashore is at a crossroads and a new vision is needed to shape the seashore's future. The Draft GMP/EIS considers alternatives to manage changes that are occurring on the island as a result of climate change and sea level rise. Through a rigorous planning process, we have explored a range of management alternatives that has involved elected officials, stakeholders, partners, and the public. We believe that NPS's preferred alternative, alternative 3, will help set a successful path for the seashore's future. Please note that NPS elected not to consider issues related to commercial finfishing in this document.
We invite you to comment on the Draft GMP/EIS and share your thoughts with us. NPS will accept comments on the Draft GMP/EIS from the public for a period of 90 days following publication of the Environmental Protection Agency's Notice of Availability in the Federal Register.
NPS will hold public meetings to solicit comments on the Draft GMP/EIS during the public review period. Dates, times, and locations will be announced here on the seashore's planning website, http://parkplanning.nps.gov/asis
, and in local papers.
We look forward to receiving your comments! Thank you for your continued interest in our management planning process and Assateague Island National Seashore.
