The Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area has prepared a study, a Commercial Services Strategy, to identify opportunities to enhance the park’s mission and the visitor experience through public/private partnerships. The purpose of the study is to: 

  • Describe the desired future conditions of the park for visitor use and private business;
  • Analyze potential commercially managed visitor services opportunities as recommended by visitors, volunteers, current business operators, park staff, and other relevant stakeholders;
  • Create a tool for quickly and easily evaluating existing and potential businesses;
  • Prioritize business opportunities and outline an action plan for potential implementation. 

A public open house is scheduled for Tuesday, August 9, 2011 at 6:00 pm to gather input on the proposed strategy for commercial service operations in the park. It will be held at the park’s headquarters at 1978 Island Ford Parkway, Sandy Springs, GA, 30350. More detailed information on the development of the Commercial Services Strategy for the park can be found at: http://www.nps.gov/chat/parkmgmt/commercial-services-strategy.htm.

For further information, or to provide feedback, please contact Kelly Chang, or William Gordon, Jr. at 678-538-1227, or via email at Kelly Chang or William Gordon, Jr.
