Dear Interested Party,

The National Park Service (NPS) has made available for public and regulatory review the Rehabilitate Support Facilities at Washington's Headquarters Environmental Assessment/Assessment of Effect (EA/AOE) for Valley Forge National Historical Park (NHP). Please find enclosed a copy of this document for your review.

This document presents and assesses the impacts of three alternative plans for rehabilitating support facilities, including a No-Action Alternative. The action alternatives include the following elements: changes to existing parking lots and circulation; enhancement of the cultural landscape; rehabilitation of the train station and its platform; improvements to visitor amenities, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, and the sanitary system; and the addition of interpretive elements.

Public participation is important to the success of this project. Therefore, we ask for your thoughtful evaluation and comment. Public comments will be accepted until May 30, 2006. You may post your comments electronically at or mail comments by this date to the following:

Valley Forge NHP
1400 North Outer Line Drive
King of Prussia, PA, 19406

It is the practice of the NPS to make all comments, including names and addresses of respondents who provide that information, available for public review following the conclusion of the NEPA process. Individuals may request that the NPS withhold their name and/or address from public disclosure. If you wish to do this, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. Commentators using the website can make such a request by checking the box "keep my contact information private." The NPS will honor such requests to the extent allowable by law, but you should be aware that the NPS may still be required to disclose your name and address pursuant to the Freedom of Information Act.

If you have any questions regarding the project, or should you need additional information, please feel free to contact Deirdre Gibson at (610) 783-1047. We thank you in advance for your attention, and we appreciate your concern for the future of Valley Forge NHP.

Very truly yours,

Michael Caldwell
