Public input sought

       Perry’s Victory & International Peace Memorial opened the draft Cultural Landscape Treatment Plan & Environmental Assessment for public review and comment for 30 days beginning March 23.

        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 purpose of the EA is to guide management, treatment, and use of resources at the Memorial and evaluate impacts to natural and cultural resources. 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.

        The plan is available at the park administrative offices, the Erie Islands Library, and online at Comments will be accepted through April 22. For further information, call 419-285-2184.
