Four upcoming scoping meetings have been set for public input on Point Reyes National Seashore’s General Management Plan (GMP) and Environmental Impact Statement. This planning document will take approximately 3-4 years to write and receive public comment on. The GMP will be the management tool for park staff for the next 10-20 years. The new plan will replace the existing plan written in 1980.

The scoping process is used to determine the scope of issues to be addressed and for identifying the significant issues related to a proposed action. Public comment can be mailed to the Superintendent, Point Reyes National Seashore, Point Reyes Station, Ca 94956, ATTN: GMP until November 30, 1999.

The four public meetings are scheduled at the following locations and time:

  • Santa Rosa Veterans Memorial, Tuesday, October 12, 1999 from 7:00 – 9:00 pm
