The public is invited to attend a community meeting hosted by Haleakalā National Park on Wednesday, February 18, 2015, in the Old Hana School Cafeteria. The meeting is scheduled from 5:00pm to 6:30pm.
Haleakalā NP is developing a "Foundation Document" to describe a shared understanding of what is most important about the park. At this meeting, park staff will present an overview of the draft document, answer questions about it, and provide general park updates. People will be able to provide comments on the draft Foundation Document at this meeting.
Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include proposed actions or management strategies, it defines Haleakalā National Park's core mission and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park's important stories. The draft Foundation Document and a comment card can be viewed at the park's website www.nps.gov/hale/parkmgmt/index.htm.
Comments can be also submitted online to https://parkplanning.nps.gov/HALE_Foundation, by email (to HALE_Superintendent@nps.gov with the subject line "HALE Foundation Document"), or by regular mail (Attention: Foundation Document, Haleakalā NP, P.O. Box 369, Makawao, HI, 96758). All comments must be received by close of business February 20, 2015.
Comments will not be accepted by FAX or in any manner other than the methods specified above. Bulk comments in any format (hardcopy or electronic) submitted on behalf of others will not be accepted. Before including a personal address, phone number, email address, or other persona lidentifying information in written comments, anyone providing written comment should be aware their entire comment - including their personal identifying information- may be made publicly available at anytime. While anyone wishing to comment may ask the National Park Service in their comment to withhold their personal identifying information from public review, the National Park Service cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.
