The National Park Service (NPS) announced today the extension of public review and comment period on the Draft Dog Management plan and Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for Golden Gate National Recreation Area through May 30, 2011. The entire document is available on the internet at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/dogplan .
The DEIS opened for a 90-day public comment period on January 14, 2011. In recognition of the complexity of the document and with deference to interest from the public and interested organizations, the comment period has been extended for an additional 45 days.
The DEIS was developed considering public input, practical knowledge, federal laws, and NPS policy. It evaluates the impacts of a range of alternatives for managing dog walking at 21 areas in Marin, San Francisco, and San Mateo Counties, and includes a preferred alternative. This is a key step in establishing a new regulation for dog walking in this unit of the National Park Service (NPS).
During the review period, the NPS is seeking substantive public input including issues or impacts the NPS may have failed to consider, inconsistencies in the plan, and additional factual information. All comments will be considered in the completion of a final plan.
Comments can be submitted online at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/dogplan, or may be mailed to: Frank Dean, General Superintendent, Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Building 201, Fort Mason, San Francisco, CA 94123-0022. All comments must be postmarked or transmitted no later than May 30, 2011. It will not be necessary for individuals, organizations, and agencies that have already commented to do so again.
Before including your address, phone number, e-mail address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, you should be aware that your entire comment—including your personal identifying information—may be made publicly available at any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
