Sitka National Historical Park prepares a variety of planning and environmental documents to help guide it in managing park resources. These documents can range from site-specific impact analyses on facility locations to broader park-wide plans for future use and management of a park.
Current planning documents can be accessed through the National Park Service Planning, Environment and Public Comment (PEPC) System. You can submit comments through PEPC for documents open to public review.
The draft version of the Long Range Interpretive Plan for Sitka National Historical park is available now for public comment at the PEPC site.
