A Message from the Superintendent

Dear Friends,

It is with great pleasure that the National Park Service offers to you for review and comment the Tule Lake Unit of WWII Valor in the Pacific National Monument General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment (GMP/EA). The full GMP/EA document is available on this site by clicking "Open For Comment" on the left.

The general management plan presents the proposed long-term management actions for the Tule Lake Unit over the next 20 years. In developing this general management plan, we explored a range of ideas, methods, and concepts for managing the Tule Lake Unit. This document describes three distinct alternative strategies for protecting and managing the Tule Lake Unit, as well as an analysis of the environmental impacts and consequences of implementing each of these alternative strategies. Alternative C has been proposed as the National Park Service's preferred alternative, and this set of actions and programs is intended to become the general management plan for the Tule Lake Unit.

Your involvement in the planning process is critical to the creation of this general management plan. Feedback received through written comments and dozens of public meetings has helped to guide the process, and you will find that many of the ideas that you contributed are represented in the management alternatives and in the National Park Service's preferred alternative for the Tule Lake Unit.

The GMP/EA is available for public review with comments due to us by February 10, 2017. We welcome your comments through this website, email, mail, or at one of our public meetings if you are able to attend. We are particularly interested in your thoughts about alternative C, the preferred alternative. Your comments will assist the NPS in revising and finalizing the general management plan.

Thank you for your support and interest in the long-term management of this important site.
