Aloha Friends,

It is with great pleasure that the National Park Service offers to you for review and comment the Honouliuli Gulch and Associated Sites Draft Special Resource Study and Environmental Assessment. The NPS launched this study with an introductory newsletter and public meetings in February and March 2011. The alternatives presented and analyzed in this report were developed based on NPS special resource study criteria and the comments that we heard from you during public scoping.

The executive summary of the draft study report is available here

The full report is available at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/honouliuli_draftreport

This draft study report is available for public review for 60 days, with comments due to us by July 15, 2014. We welcome your comments through e-mail, our web site, mail, or e-mail:

Mahalo to all that attended our public meetings in Hawaii!

The Department of the Interior, Environment, and Related Agencies Appropriations Act of 2010 (signed into law October 30, 2009) authorized the National Park Service to conduct a special resource study of the national significance, suitability, and feasibility of including the Honouliuli Gulch and the associated sites within the State of Hawaii in the National Park System.

The NPS is directed to consult with the State of Hawaii, appropriate federal agencies, Native Hawaiian and local government entities, private and nonprofit organizations, private landowners, and other interested parties.

The study will evaluate Honouliuli Gulch and associated sites located on Oahu and other Hawaiian islands with respect to (1) the significance of the site as a component of World War II; (2) the significance of the site as the site related to the forcible internment of Japanese Americans, European Americans, and other individuals; and (3) historic resources at the site.

At the conclusion of the study process, the National Park Service will submit a report to Congress that describes the findings, conclusions and recommendations of the study.
