​​Following the required waiting period after the Notice of Availability for the Final GMP/EIS was published in the Federal Register (April 25, 2014) the Record of Decision (ROD) documenting the ultimate choice of the alternatives was signed by the Regional Director on January 30, 2015. With the signing of the ROD, implementation of the plan can begin.

A summary edition of the plan is being prepared and will be available later this year. Please contact the GGNRA Planning & Compliance Division at or (415) 561-4700 to request a ​printed ​copy.

The General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (GMP/EIS) is the culmination of several years of effort involving the thoughtful input and participation of thousands of individuals, dozens of public agencies, and numerous outside organizations and stakeholder groups. This plan replaces the 1980 general management plan which effectively guided the park for more than three decades.

The new plan identifies the preferred alternatives—Connecting People with the Parks for parkland in San Mateo, San Francisco, and Marin counties; and Focusing on National Treasures for Muir Woods and Alcatraz Island—as reshaped by public comments on the Draft GMP/EIS. The plan includes a summary of comments and the NPS responses to them. A limited number of CDs and printed documents will be available at GGNRA headquarters in Fort Mason, Building 201, San Francisco. Printed copies have been sent to the following libraries: San Mateo County—Main, San Francisco—Main, Marin County—Civic Center.
