Arlington, Va.–Today, the National Park Service released the Fort Hunt Park Site Development Plan and Environmental Assessment (SDP/EA) for  public review and comment. This SDP/EA follows a previous plan released in September 2011 and includes new alternatives in response to public feedback and additional analysis. Comments are being accepted through August 7, 2015.

The purpose of the plan is to identify an overall management direction for Fort Hunt Park. The plan creates a balance among recreation, enhanced interpretation and the protection of natural and cultural resources.  The EA was completed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), as well as other applicable laws, regulations and policies.
