The Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) website is NPS's primary tool dedicated to facilitating public input into decision making processes. The PEPC website was taken offline during the government shutdown, which prohibited the ability of affected parties and the public to provide comments on any projects or proposals whose comment periods were open between December 21, 2018, and Feb 4, 2019, when PEPC was put back in service. To ensure that the public has ample opportunity to review and comment, the comment period for this proposal will reopen on Feb 4, 2019 and be extended through Feb 11, 2019. Any written comments received or comments entered into PEPC prior to the shutdown will be considered and included in the overall project record.
Grand Canyon-Parashant National Monument proposes to create a site management plan, implementing recommended actions from the Tassi Cultural Landscape Report, in the context of maintaining viable habitat for the special status riparian and aquatic species associated with Tassi Ranch and sustainable visitor use. Work would include preservation of historic structures, installation of modern visitor infrastructure and monitoring equipment and planting and maintaining historically representative vegetation.
