 The National Park Service (NPS) will provide an update on the project status for the West Pond Environmental Assessment on Jan. 22 at the Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge Visitor Center.

The project is in the early states of the planning to address storm damage to Gateway National Recreation Area's West Pond during Hurricane Sandy.  The NPS received initial public input during the June 30-July 30, 2014 comment period.

The update on the project's status will be provided at an Open House from 6 to 8 p.m. on Jan. 22.  The NPS invites everyone to attend to learn more about proposed concept designs, ask questions and obtain information about West Pond.

"The ongoing participation of the public is very important to the success of this project," said Jennifer T. Nersesian, Superintendent of Gateway National Recreation Area. "We have already benefited greatly from the knowledge and expertise of the many stakeholders and organizations with an interest in the knowledge and expertise of the many stakeholders and organizations with an interest in the Refuge.  We look forward to continue working with the public as this process moves forward."
