Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve is seeking public comment on the Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan. Your participation is an important part of this planning process. If you would like to provide input about the plan, you can view it and submit your comments by visiting the project planning website at: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/OrcaAccessibility. You may also see a copy of the plan at the local library (Cave Junction) and Illinois Valley Visitor Center in Cave Junction, OR. We will accept comments through Jan. 16, 2016.
The Accessibility Self-Evaluation and Transition Plan will guide changes to the way existing services, activities, and programs are provided at federal facilities in Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve. The plan defines what barriers limit accessibility in multiple locations throughout the park and provides recommendations on how we can modify or remove barriers to increase accessibility for all users. An interdisciplinary team including park and regional staff looked at key park experiences, prioritized the most important areas, assessed the accessibility of each priority park area, and developed implementation strategies for improving the accessibility at each location.
Your input on the plan will help us as we work to ensure that Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve is more accessible to all visitors. The National Park Service values the public's interest in Oregon Caves National Monument and Preserve and we look forward to your participation in this planning process.
