Open until April 2, 2004
FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF
MAINTENANCE AND CURATORIAL FACILITIES
IN SKAGWAY, ALASKA FOR
KLONDIKE GOLD RUSH NATIONAL HISTORICAL PARK
Dear Skagway Neighbor or Interested Person,
The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public input on a construction project being considered in Skagway, Alaska. The NPS is proposing to construct certain facilities at the maintenance yard in Skagway. An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared for the project. It analyzes three alternatives – the "no-action" alternative, the alternative to build three new buildings, and the alternative for a full lot build-out at the site. The project site is on Alaska Street between 1st and 2nd Avenue. It is a National Park Service owned administrative site, not within the boundary of the National Historical Park (which in Skagway is limited to the Historic District). The EA presents mitigation measures that set limits on any future construction of buildings, additions or facilities on the site. They have been designed to assure that construction is compatible with the character of Skagway.
The EA is available at the park office in Skagway, or on line at the park's web site at www.npg.gov/klgo. Comments on the EA are requested by April 2nd.
Please send your comments, to arrive by the close of business on April 2, 2004, preferably by email to Meg_Hahr@nps.gov, or by post to Meg Hahr, Natural Resources Program Manager at the above address, or by fax to 907 983-9249 attention Meg Hahr.
