Management Documents

The Final General Management Plan/Environmental Impact Statement for the Blue Ridge Parkway will guide the management of resources, visitor use, and general development at the park over a 20 or more year period. The primary purpose of the plan is to provide a foundation from which to protect park resources while providing for meaningful visitor experiences. Under the selected alternative, Alt. B, the Parkway will be actively managed as a traditional, self-contained, scenic recreational driving experience and designed landscape, while enhancing recreational opportunities and large-scale natural resource connectivity and protection.
