Picture yourself standing at the Great Falls overlook today. What do you see, feel and experience? Now imagine what this place will look like 20 years from now. What changes in your view?
These questions about the future of Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park are being explored right now and we invite you to be part of creating that vision as we start the General Management Plan.
A General Management Plan (GMP) lays out a vision and guides decision making to get there over the next 20 years. All units of the national park system are required to have a GMP that address resource protection, visitor use, facilities and boundary.
We invite you to review our Fall 2012 Newsletter for an update on our progress. In this newsletter, you'll find a review of our first year's accomplishments, a summary of your comments and suggestions from our public open houses, and an update on our planning progress.
The park's Federal Advisory Commission, charged with helping to create Paterson Great Falls' General Management Plan, will meet on the following dates in 2013:
Meetings are open to the public and will be held at the Paterson Museum, located at 2 Market Street (intersection of Market and Spruce Streets) in Paterson, N.J.
