The National Park Service (NPS), in cooperation with the Federal Highway Administration, proposes to rehabilitate 22 miles of paved park roads and parking areas in Point Reyes National Seashore including Limantour Road and the roads to the Lighthouse and Chimney Rock. In accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act, the NPS has prepared an Environmental Assessment to evaluate the potential effects of alternatives for repairing and improving park roads and parking areas on the natural, cultural, and human environment. The public has the opportunity to comment on the Environmental Assessment until August 18, 2014.

NEW! - Sir Francis Drake Boulevard Road Improvement EA/IS
Marin County has been awarded $15 million in federal funds through the Federal Lands Access Program (FLAP) for improvements to approximately 12 miles of Sir Francis Drake Boulevard in Point Reyes National Seashore. [Map - 108 PDF] The FLAP is administered by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), which, in cooperation with Marin County and the National Park Service (NPS), is initiating a planning and environmental review process in conformance with both the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). As the first step in outreach for this planning process, the FHWA will conduct public scoping to determine issues and alternatives that should be addressed in the Environmental Assessment (EA)/Initial Study (IS) to be prepared for the proposed improvements. The public scoping period is open until August 30, 2014. Project staff would like to hear your perspective on specific problems along the road, ideas for alternatives that should be considered, as well as your concerns or questions about the project that should be addressed in the forthcoming EA/IS. A public scoping meeting to discuss the proposed improvements will be held on Tuesday, July 22, 2014, from 6 pm to 8 pm in the Red Barn Classroom at Point Reyes National Seashore headquarters.

Ranch Comprehensive Management Plan
The National Park Service (NPS) has initiated a ranch planning process for the approximately 28,000 acres of working beef cattle and dairy ranches administered by Point Reyes National Seashore. The first step in the ranch planning process was initiation of public scoping. Scoping, which ran from April 21 through June 2, 2014, invited the public to comment so concerns were identified early and the analysis is focused on the issues raised.

Proposed Fee Increase for Winter Shuttle Bus
The National Park Service sought public input from August 27 through October 31, 2013, about proposed increases to the shuttle bus fee from $5 to $7 for a roundtrip from Drakes Beach to the Lighthouse, Chimney Rock then returning to Drakes Beach. This is the first proposed fee increase for the shuttle bus system since 2007.

A 45-day public scoping period intended to engage the public in this NEPA process, which will evaluate the effects of the potential issuance of a right of way permit for the commercial telecommunications facility, closed on August 7, 2013.
