Public input sought

        The Cultural Landscape Treatment Plan and Environmental Assessment (EA) will guide future management of the historic memorial landscape and determine impacts from implementing this plan. The cultural landscape treatment plan includes care of historic trees and shrubs, addition or alteration of ramps, sidewalks, or stairs to improve access to the plaza and memorial column, installation of wayside exhibits, locations for future housing and outdoor gathering space, and enhancements to park gateways.

The proposed action is needed at this time to provide park staff with a detailed plan that supports historic landscape management in accordance with National Park Service planning and management policies. The NPS has drafted concepts for moving forward and is seeking public and community input during this 30-day period which ends April 22.
