Manhattan Project National Historical Park is initiating a stakeholder engagement process that will be used to help inform the park’s interpretive planning process. The National Park Service will be engaging the public in a series of virtual meetings beginning in April with a specific focus on the park’s four Interpretive Themes. The National Park Service is hoping for broad public participation in these events, especially from the local communities and nearby cities in each of the three Manhattan Project NHP locations, and from stakeholders with specific interest in or ties to the Manhattan Project. Engagement sessions will be organized both by theme and by region. The intention of the National Park Service is to reach as broad and diverse of an audience as possible in order to obtain input on a wide array of experiences and perspectives that will inform the development of the interpretive plan and visitor experience for the park. Due to ongoing public health restrictions associated with COVID-19 all events will be held virtually.
