Superintendent Mike Murray, in conjunction with the Southeast Regional Office, announced today that the public comment period on the preliminary alternatives for the Fort Raleigh National Historic Site (FORA) General Management Plan (GMP) has been extended. The GMP establishes fundamental goals and objectives for the park with regard to protecting and preserving its natural and cultural resources and for providing visitor services and achieving desired visitor experiences.
The National Park Service (NPS) developed a newsletter describing the preliminary alternatives and conducted two open house meetings in June 2007. The public comment period, originally set to close July 31, is now extended to September 30, 2007.
