Park Planning

The National Park Service 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.

The National Park Service Planning, Environment and Public Comment site provides access to current plans, environmental impact analyses, and related documents on public review. Users of the site can submit comments for documents available for public review.
