General Management Plan, Environmental Impact Statement Approved

Dear Friends,

On behalf of the planning team, I am pleased to announce that the Record of Decision for the General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement for Gateway National Recreation Area has been approved.

It is the culmination of a great deal of time, effort, energy and input from members of the public; New York City agencies; other federal, state and local agencies; interested organizations and their members; and the National Park Service. The comments and suggestions that many of you provided made the final plan an even stronger vision for the future of Gateway - your participation has made a difference.

The National Park Service values you interest in continuing a meaningful connection with the park, and we look forward to implementing this plan with your support. As the life of this GMP is expected to be 20 years, it may be many years before some of the projects in the plan are funded and implemented. In some cases, there will be additional opportunities for public participation to refine the details while remaining consistent with the GMP direction. The NPS will do our best to be true to the intent of the GMP.

On behalf of the National Park Service family, please accept our most sincere gratitude for your commitment and dedication to this process over the past 5 years. It is time now to come together in the work ahead to implement the plan.

The Record of Decision is available here.
