2022 YUCH Superintendent's Compendium Proposed Changes
The current Superintendents Compendium (dated 2021) is available at:
After review and consideration of the need for annual updates, the Superintendent is proposing a single substantive change: allowance under 36 CFR 13.35(d) of select cutting of standing dead trees by members of the public from September through April for the sole purpose of heating public use cabins and temporary shelters within the preserve provided certain conditions are met. Details regarding the proposed change and relevant conditions are available for viewing and comment at the 'Open for Comment' tab to the left.
Public comment will be accepted from January 15 - February 15, 2022.
The Superintendent's Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under the discretionary authority of the park Superintendent. The park compendium is updated annually and is a written compilation that addressed designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions and/or specifications imposed under the discretionary authority of the superintendent. The Superintendent's Compendium is prepared in accordance with the delegated authority contained within the regulations in Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter I, Parts 1 through 7, as authorized by Title 54, United States Code, and establishes regulatory provisions for Gates of the Arctic National Park and Preserve. Parts 1 through 6 are general regulations applicable to all areas of the National Park System, and Part 13 contains special regulations specific to individual parks in Alaska.
The park compendium does not contain those regulations found in 36 Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and other United States Codes (U.S.C.) and CFR Titles which are enforced without further elaboration at the park level.
The public is invited to comment on a proposed change to the 2022 Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve Superintendent's Compendium.
