Scoping Notice - Environmental Assessment, Assateague Island National Seashore Bayside Picnic Parking Area Relocation

The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing an environmental assessment (EA) in support of the proposed Bayside Picnic Parking Area Relocation project for Assateague Island National Seashore, Maryland. The purpose of the proposed project is to relocate the Bayside Picnic Parking Area to a location that is less susceptible to damage from future storm events and that will provide long-term visitor access to this area of the national seashore. The NPS encourages your participation throughout the planning process.

We invite you to share your knowledge about the project area and your ideas for the facilities at a public workshop on Tuesday, May 13, 2014 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM at the park's Environmental Education Center, 7206 National Seashore Lane, Berlin, MD 21811 (the old visitor center). A repeat of the workshop will be held at 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM on Saturday, June 7th, also at the park's Environmental Education Center. The NPS is currently in the scoping phase of the proposed project and invites the public to submit written suggestions, comments, and concerns regarding the project either at the public workshops or online at the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website at: no later than June 15, 2014.

Written comments may also be mailed to the address below, and must be received by June 15, 2014.
