General Management Plan

The Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park General Management Plan was released in January of 2009. The plan explores three different alternatives for developing and managing the new national park in Richmond, California; Alternative B, Explore Richmond to Understand the National Home Front Story, has been identified as the "preferred alternative." Although the official comment period closed on April 29, 2009, we invite you to review the plan and share your thoughts with us on how to begin implementing the concepts expressed in the plan.
