Kalahaku Overlook Area ManagmentHaleakalā National Park plans to rehabilitate the Kalahaku Overlook Areas for visitor safety and enjoyment. Several options for this work are being considered. The options include delineating and creating visitor use areas a variety of methods (which will need analysis in the EA), placing interpretive signs, and repairing a historic trail. The public is invited to provide input on the proposed actions, environmental and cultural considerations, potential alternatives, and any other relevant issues that should be considered. The park will consult with the State Historic Preservation Division regarding potential impacts to the historic Kalahaku Overlook area, and with the USFWS on impacts to threatened and endangered species. Priorities for alternatives in the EA should ensure protection of natural and cultural resources (especially threatened and endangered species), the safety and enjoyment of park visitors, and positive community relations.
