Contact: Kim Coons, 912-638-3639
The National Park Service (NPS) has published a draft General Management Plan Amendment and Environmental Assessment (GMPA/EA) for Fort Frederica National Monument. The purpose of this Environmental Assessment is to evaluate the potential impacts resulting from a proposed exchange of land between Fort Frederica and adjacent Christ Church. Two alternative management strategies for the land that Fort Frederica will be receiving are presented within the amendment.
On Tuesday, June 27, 2006, the National Park Service invites all interested individuals, groups, park neighbors, organizations, agencies, and public officials to a public open house to comment on or ask questions about the draft GMPA/EIA. The open house will take place at the Fort Frederica Visitor Center from 3 pm until 7 pm. There is no formal presentation, so interested parties are welcome at any time during the open house hours.
Copies of the plan may be obtained at the Fort Frederica National Monument Visitor Center. The plan is also available for viewing via the Internet at the NPS Planning website. The National Park Service will be accepting comments on the draft plan until July 31, 2006.
