The Next Ten Years, the last update to the Corridor's Management plan

As part of the Corridor's reauthorization legislation in 2006, Congress directed the Commission to update our management plan. This updated Management Plan will define a vision for the Corridor, guide the Commission's work, and provide a framework for its many partnerships.

Please follow this link to see an overview of the new plan.

If you have questions about the management plan update, or would like to comment on it, please contact Joanna Doherty at 401-762-0250 x14 or email joanna_doherty@nps.gov.
