The National Park Service (NPS) is soliciting public input on the proposed development of fire management plans for 28 park units nationwide, including Aztec Ruins National Monument.
The NPS has prepared a scoping document that explains the purpose and need for developing a fire management plan and describes the action, which will be analyzed in an environmental assessment. Any area residents, business owners, local officials, organizational representatives, and others interested in this project are encouraged to download the scoping document and, after your review, submit comments. Comments can be expressed concerns, thoughts, and suggestions (such as for a new alternative) for the proposed fire management actions and mechanical and prescribed fire treatments described in the scoping document.
The 30-day scoping period begins February 1, 2016 and will end March 1, 2016.
The scoping document is available online at the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website. To download the document and submit your comments online go to the NPS planning website at:
