A full range of visions and ideas for how Ross Lake National Recreation Area’s resources, programs, recreational activities, and facilities could be managed in the future have been developed. These visions and ideas are outlined in preliminary alternatives and management zones which address the Recreation Area’s purpose, resource and visitor use issues, legal mandates, and the public comments received to date.

This is an important step to creating a General Management Plan that will guide the development and management of Ross Lake National Recreation Area over the next 15 to 20 years. The Plan is intended to be a useful long-term decision-making tool, providing park managers with a logical and trackable rationale for decisions about the protection, development, and public use of the Recreation Area and its resources.

The public is encouraged to visit to view the draft alternatives and management zones, to read planning newsletters, submit comments, and to sign up for the General Management Plan mailing list.

The formal public comment period ends on March 21, 2008.

Note to Editors: Photos and maps are available. Please call Amanda Schramm at (206) 220-4257 or e-mail with your request.
