Lake Mead NRA Foundation Document
Dear Neighbors, Friends, and Partners:
I am pleased to announce that the National Park Service (NPS) is in the process of preparing a Foundation Document for planning and management at Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I invite you to join with us in this endeavor.
A Foundation Document involves revisiting a national park unit's core mission and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include actions or management strategies, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. In this capacity, the Foundation Document will reestablish the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions for the National Park Service at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Because many of Lake Mead's original NPS planning documents are dated, preparing the Foundation Document is the first step for considering the park's future planning and study needs.
Your voice is important to us. I invite you to play a role in charting the park's future by reviewing and providing comments on the draft document so that we may take your thoughts into consideration as we finalize the Foundation Document. You may submit your feedback in a couple of ways:
• Input your comments online
• Fill out and mail the comment form enclosed with the newsletter
All comments should be submitted by February 18, 2015.
Thank you for your interest in the national treasure we call Lake Mead National Recreation Area. I look forward to continuing to work with you as we plan for its future.
