SNP Seeks Feedback On Rock Outcrop Plan
Posted: November 20, 2012
HARRISONBURG — Park officials are looking for feedback from local residents on a recently released environmental assessment document.
Shenandoah National Park Superintendent Martha Bogle announced Nov. 12 that the public is invited to comment on the revised SNP Rock Outcrop Management Plan and Environmental Assessment.
The document was created in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act.
It’s meant to help make decisions about management goals and potential impacts to resources.
The rock outcrop plan is the product of a three-year project. Park staff have taken inventory of the natural resources of rock outcrops and cliff areas in the park, as well as assessed recreation use and impacts to them.
The plan, which includes climbing management guidelines, was based on research involving hikers, climbers, nature enthusiasts and other park supporters.
The public can comment on the document until Dec. 13. It’s available for review and comment online at www.parkplanning.nps.gov/shen.
Comments may be posted online at that link or sent to: Superintendent, Shenandoah National Park, Attention: ROMP EA, 3655 U.S. Highway 211 East, Luray, VA 22835.
