Dog Management Planning
Given the substance of many of those comments, information from additional data and studies, and potential changes to the alternatives and impacts analysis resulting from that information, a Supplemental DEIS is being finalized and is expected to be released for public comment by early summer, 2013. This additional step in the project will add approximately a year to the schedule.
Improvements Around the Golden Gate Bridge Cause Detours and Delays
In preparation for the 75th anniversary of the opening of the Golden Gate Bridge several large projects will be taking place around the access point of the Bridge, including trail work, road improvements, and the construction of a visitor pavilion. All of these improvements will greatly enhance visitor experiences when complete, however, over the next several months look for traffic detours and delays. For more information about these projects and the planned celebration of the anniversary visit www.goldengatebridge75.org.
Significant improvements in the accessibility and safety of several popular Marin Headlands roads are planned to take place over the next several years. Those changes require major construction, road closures and delays. The first phase of the four-year Project Headlands got underway in 2010. The Federal Highway Administration (FHA) and National Park Service (NPS) are working together on these improvements.
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA)
The Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is a federal law that gives you the right to access any Golden Gate National Recreation Area, National Park Service (NPS), or Department of the Interior (DOI) records unless DOI reasonably foresees that the release of the information in those records would harm an interest protected by one or more of the nine exemptions (reasons an agency may withhold records from a requester) or release is prohibited by law.
With the new year comes a large new addition to the Golden Gate National Recreation Area. Rancho Corral de Tierra, comprising nearly 4,000 acres east of Montara, Moss Beach and El Granada, is one of the largest undeveloped parcels in San Mateo County, and includes four watersheds, distinctive scrub and chaparral habitats, and awe-inspiring views.
Firearms In National Parks
As of February 22, 2010, a new federal law allows people who can legally possess firearms under applicable federal, state, and local laws, to legally possess firearms in this park.
It is the responsibility of visitors to understand and comply with all applicable state, local, and federal firearms laws before entering this park.
Visit our Laws and Policies section for additional information.
The Muir Beach restoration is a landscape-level coastal restoration project designed to bring back natural function to the creek, freshwater wetlands, intermittent tidal lagoon and dunes over a 46-acre site at the mouth of one of the iconic watersheds in the Bay Area. The project will also enhance visitor amenities at the parking lot and picnic area, create interpretive opportunities such as waysides and self-guided hikes, and improve regional trail links.
