Planning & Compliance
JUNE 2013 UPDATE
The Draft General Management Plan / East Everglades Wilderness Study / Environmental Impact Statement public review and comment period concluded on May 12, 2013.
Nine (9) public meetings and more than 20 additional stakeholder events were held over the past 3 months, providing invaluable public input that will be used to develop the Final GMP.
The planning team will be spending the rest of 2013 analyzing the thousands of comments received, making necessary changes to the plan and preferred alternative based on the public review process, and developing the final document.
The Final GMP is expected to be released to the public in early 2014.
