General Management Plan

The Kalaupapa National Historical Park Draft General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement (Draft GMP/EIS) is now available for review and comment. The GMP will provide guidance for the future preservation and management of Kalaupapa for the next 15-20 years. It will serve as Kalaupapa's "blueprint" for the future. We hope you will share your thoughts, ideas, and vision throughout the planning process so that together we can keep Kalaupapa a sacred place for the patient community along with protection, preservation, and interpretation of cultural, historical, and natural resources. We are reaching out for your kokua and mana'o as we develop the general management plan.

We welcome your thoughts and ideas about the Draft GMP/EIS. You can access the files online here:
