Kings Mountain Fire Management Plan and EA
Kings Mountain National Military Park
2625 Park Road
Blacksburg, SC 29702
Kings Mountain National Military Park (KIMO )is joining with its neighbors, Kings Mountain State Park (KMSP) in South Carolina, and Crowders Mountain State Park (CRMO) in North Carolina, to develop a joint Fire Management Plan (FMP). Policy from federal and state agencies recommends developing FMP's on an interagency basis whenever possible. Before this interagency FMP is developed, the National Park Service (NPS), in cooperation with the state parks, is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA). This EA is part of the process to address changes in fire management strategies, vegetation communities, and fuel loading that has occurred over the years since historic settlement of the area, and since the 3 parks were created. This EA process will be employed to gather public input and suggestions for the interagency EA and FMP.
