Park Superintendents Don Neubacher (Point Reyes National Seashore) and Brian O’Neill (Golden Gate National Recreation Area) today announced that these two popular Bay Area national parks have completed their Long-term Strategic Plans and budgets for Fiscal Year 1999 as required by the “National Parks Omnibus Management Act of 1998.”
These two National Park Units are responsible for the long-term management of over 150,000 acres in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties. Last year, the two parks were visited by nearly 20 million people. Point Reyes’ annual budget is $3.7 million and Golden Gate’s is $12.1 million for this fiscal year.
These long-term strategic plans are looking at issues such as resource preservation and management of special status species, visitor and educational services, public facility operations and maintenance, administration, and construction.
The goals described in these plans are derived from the 1997 National Park Service Strategic Plan which establishes a performance management process for the National Park Service and incorporates the requirements of the Government Performance and Results Act.
