BAR HARBOR, MAINE – The Acadia National Park Advisory Commission meeting scheduled for June 5 has been postponed.
The Department of the Interior has begun a review of the charters and charges of all Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA) Advisory Commissions in an effort to maximize feedback from these boards and to ensure their compliance with both FACA and the President’s recent executive orders. The goal is to institutionalize state and local input and ongoing collaboration, particularly in communities surrounding public lands. This review process necessitates the temporary postponement of advisory committee meetings. Therefore, all meetings by these groups are postponed for the present time.
The National Park Service will share further information and guidance as it becomes available. Please direct all inquiries concerning the postponement to e-mail us.
