Preliminary Alternative Concepts Workbook Released to Support Public MRP Workshops

Yosemite National Park is committed to engaging the public throughout the planning process for the Merced Wild and Scenic River Comprehensive Management Plan. To support this effort, Yosemite released the Preliminary Alternative Concepts Workbook on March 19, 2012. Within the workbook, five alternative concepts offer a range of options to manage river values, visitor-use capacity, and land use. The workbook will guide discussions at a series of spring 2012 public workshops and webinars, set for late March and April. Prepare to attend a workshop by downloading the workbook at https://www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/mrp_documents.htm or receive a paper copy at a public meeting.

To share your feedback on the range of preliminary alternative concepts presented in the workbook, visit https://parkplanning.nps.gov/MRPAlternatives. You can also email your comments to e-mail us or send a letter by U.S. mail sent to the following address:

Public comment and internal review will be incorporated into the draft alternatives that will be analyzed in the draft environmental impact statement (DEIS) due to be released in fall 2012.
