Compendium Introduction

The purpose of this compendium is to produce a concise written document which provides all of the special designations, closures, public use limits, permit requirements imposed under the discretionary authority of the Superintendent. The preparation of a compendium is required under Section §1.7, Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and shall be made available to the public upon request. The compendium also lists special regulations found under 36 CFR §7.67 for Cape Cod National Seashore. The compendium will be reviewed and updated annually to ensure adequate protection of the parks resources, provide for public safety and enjoyment, and to meet changes in recreational use patterns.

It is important to utilize this document in conjunction with Title 36, CFR, since the compendium only addresses restrictions imposed under the discretionary authority of the Superintendent, or regulations which authorize special designations, closures, or other use limits. The use of this compendium, in conjunction with park brochure, maps, signs and other media will provide a clear understanding of park rules and regulations for both the National Park Service employees and park visitors. Your comments and suggestions are welcome.
