Alternative Development Workbook Published Online
Getting in on the ground floor provides an opportunity to have greatest impact on a project. That is why we are offering this unique opportunity to share your insight before alternatives have been created for the Merced River Plan.

The workbook provides a window into our process and represents a high degree of transparency. Through it you will gain insight in to some of the key considerations that must be weighed to balance the sometimes conflicting goals of:

  • ecological and natural resource values,
  • direct connection to the river values,
  • visitor use management, and
  • land use and associated developments

The workbook articulates the challenges that park management must address to meet the Merced River Plan goals of balancing resource protection with visitor access and enjoyment. It also identifies 35 key management considerations and potential options for detailed discussion. These management considerations were selected for discussion based on complexity and public interest.

You can find the workbook at www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/mrp_documents.htm

Fill it out online or download it to review and begin preparing for our upcoming meetings!
