SAVANNAH – The National Park Service is preparing a foundation document to guide planning and management of Fort Pulaski National Monument. The park would like to invite the public to join in this effort. A foundation document involves examining a national park unit’s core purpose and significance, its most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park’s important stories.
The foundation document will affirm the underlying guidance for future management and planning decisions at Fort Pulaski National Monument. Preparing the foundation document is the first step for considering the park’s future planning and study needs. Although the document does not make decisions about the future of the park, it describes a shared understanding of what is most important about the park.
All park units in the national park system will have a foundation document by 2016, the 100-year anniversary of the creation of the National Park Service. Fort Pulaski National Monument is part of a nationwide effort to complete foundation documents for all 407 park units in the park system.
The National Park Service encourages all interested citizens to play a role in outlining the park’s future by sharing their thoughts on what is most important about Fort Pulaski, potential issues that could threaten future preservation and commemoration of the site, and what opportunities to improve the protection of this national treasure exist. The project team will consider public input while developing the plan during a workshop planned for early June.
To ask questions or share your thoughts on this planning process, please contact project manager, Justin Henderson.
