The National Park Service has scheduled an open house for Tuesday, February 10 on the 2015 park compendium for Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park, according to Superintendent Mike Tranel. The open house will be held in the conference room above the NPS visitor center at 2nd and Broadway in Skagway from 6-7:30 pm and will provide for face-to-face dialogue about any aspect of the compendium including existing park regulations and new regulations proposed for 2015. Proposed regulations for 2015 include the prohibition on the use of pets and animals from the Bovidae and Camelidae Families, including goats, sheep, alpacas and llamas on federal and certain state owned lands inside the park. Additionally, the NPS proposes to adopt municipal and state fire ban ordinance as enforceable regulation on federally owned lands within the park and state owned lands managed by NPS in the Chilkoot Trail Unit of the park. The proposed regulations are not applicable to private or municipal owned lands inside the administrative boundaries of the park. The public can view the proposed 2015 Compendium online.
A public hearing will follow the Open House to record public comments on proposed permanent restrictions for horse use in the Dyea Historic Town site. The hearing will begin at 7 pm.
