Superintendent Patrick Reed has called for a public meeting on Thursday, October 29, at the Lincoln Volunteer Fire Department, to assess ferry use and the possibility of extending hours of operation. Information gathered at the meeting will be used in preparing the Green River Crossing Environmental Assessment (EA).

"We want to hear from the people who use the ferries," said Reed. "Information from this meeting will be a valuable tool as we proceed through the planning process. I hope many area residents and commuters will be able to come."

The meeting will run from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. Central Time at the Lincoln VFD. Comment forms will be available and park staff will be on hand.

"We are accepting written comments and we have also prepared a comment form with specific questions to help us quantify the information," added Reed. "We want to know about the use of both the Green River Ferry and Houchins Ferry, for the EA, but also for how we will approach basic ferry operations in the coming year."

The comment period will be open for two weeks, ending November 13, 2009. Comment forms will also be available at the park visitor center and the Superintendent’s office.

For questions about the meeting, please call Vickie Carson, public information officer, at 270-758-2192.
