Cultural Landscape Report/Environmental Assessment for Clinton Birthplace Home
President Clinton lived in this house for the first four years of his life with his mother and maternal grandparents he continued to visit his grandparents here until his grandfather's death in 1956.
The National Park Service (NPS) is preparing a Cultural Landscape Report and Environmental Assessment (CLR/EA) to identify key landscape resources at President William Jefferson Clinton Birthplace Home National Historic Site (the site) and provide schematic recommendations for protecting the site while accommodating visitor use.
The purpose of the proposed action is to guide management, treatment, and use of resources at the site. Treatment recommendations would focus on specific components of the landscape to assist the NPS in managing the historic property, provide support for neighboring landowners interested in preservation, and establish a foundation of information that will assist in the development of an interpretive program at the site.
The NPS is currently in the scoping phase of the project and is encouraging public input. Scoping, the first step in the planning process, is an information gathering process, and public comments are crucial to defining the issues and concerns to be addressed in the CLR/EA. To share your thoughts, ideas, and concerns with us, we encourage you to comment electronically through this website. The public will also have an opportunity to comment on the CLR/EA when it is released.
