The Superintendent's Compendium is the summary of park specific rules implemented under the discretionary authority of the park Superintendent. The park compendium is updated annually and is a written compilation that addressed designations, closures, permit requirements, and other restrictions and/or specifications imposed under the discretionary authority of the superintendent. The Superintendent's Compendium is prepared in accordance with the delegated authority contained within the regulations in Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, Chapter I, Parts 1 through 7, as authorized by Title 54, United States Code, Section 100101 and 100751, and establishes regulatory provisions for Kenai Fjords National Park. Parts 1 through 6 are general regulations applicable to all areas of the National Park System, and Part 13 contains special regulations specific to individual parks in Alaska.
Proposed changes in 2020 to the Superintendent's compendium for KEFJ consist of the following (See attachment):
-Proposed new language in 36 CFR 2.52
-Allowing E-Bikes in accordance with the provisions of 36 CFR Part 4. E-Bikes are allowed on park roads, parking areas, and trails that are open to traditional bicycles. E-bikes are prohibited where traditional bicycles are prohibited under 36 CFR 4.30. Except where use of motor vehicles by the public is allowed, using the electric motor to move an e-bike without peddling is prohibited.
A public comment period regarding the proposed changes will be open on PEPC from January 15, 2020 - February 15, 2020.
