The Park initiated the WSP/EIS in 2015 and conducted a public scoping comment period that winter. In association with public scoping, the Park hosted two meetings and three webinars in an effort to engage the public and other stakeholders in the planning process. In 2016, the park released preliminary concepts and ideas aimed at addressing visitor use and capacity, and stock use issues. The public was given the opportunity to engage with NPS staff during four in-person meetings, and two webinars, and was encouraged to provide input regarding these ideas during a second comment period (summer 2016).
On behalf of Yosemite National Park, the wilderness planning team wishes to express our gratitude for the extensive public involvement we have received during the initial phases of developing the park's Wilderness Stewardship Plan. We are now turning our attention to additional research, data collection and analysis to refine management alternatives before releasing additional materials for public comment. Extending the analytical phase of the project has delayed the release of the draft EIS for public comment and the record of decision beyond the projected completion date. As we get closer to the next round of public involvement, we will alert you to upcoming opportunities to re-engage with this important effort.
