Superintendent Mike Murray announced today that Fort Raleigh National Historic Site (FORA) will hold Open House Meetings in the auditorium of the Lindsay Warren Visitor Center at the National Historic Site for the public to review and evaluate alternative General Management Plan (GMP) concepts. 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. A newsletter describing the preliminary alternatives has been developed and will be discussed during the Open House meetings which will be held at Fort Raleigh National Historic Site off Highway 64 near the north end of Roanoke Island according to the following schedule:
