VAN BUREN, MO:  The National Park Service (NPS) is proposing to replace obsolete park housing at four locations within Ozark National Scenic Riverways. This project includes four existing housing areas that no longer meet minimum housing requirements due to significant deficiencies. An environmental assessment (EA) has been prepared to summarize the proposed actions and analyze the impacts associated with the action alternative and the no-action alternative. The EA will be available for public review and comment until May 22, 2017.  

 A full copy of the EA can be viewed at the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) site at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/ozar, or may be requested from Ozark National Scenic Riverways by calling (573) 323-4236.

Comments must be received no later than May 22, and may be submitted online via the PEPC website or by mail to:  Ozark National Scenic Riverways, Attn: Ozark National Scenic Riverways Housing Replacement EA, P.O. Box 490, Van Buren, MO, 63965.

Ozark National Scenic Riverways preserves the free-flowing Current and Jacks Fork Rivers, the surrounding natural resources, and the unique cultural heritage of the Ozark people. For more park information, visit the park’s Facebook page or website at www.nps.gov/ozar, or phone (573)323-4236.
