General Management Plan

General Management Plan

Kalaupapa National Historical Park is in the process of developing a general management plan (GMP). 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 the protection, preservation, and interpretation of cultural, historical, and natural resources. We are reaching out for your kōkua and manaʻo as we develop the general management plan.

 

We welcome your thoughts and ideas about the GMP. You may contact us through email or send a letter to:
