Public Meetings Scheduled for Yosemite National Park’s Revised Merced River Plan/SEIS
The National Park Service in Yosemite will conduct a series of public meetings during the comment period for the Draft Merced Wild and Scenic River Revised Comprehensive Management Plan and Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement. The revision focuses on the river corridor boundary in El Portal and user capacity for the entire 81-mile corridor in Yosemite.
During the public meetings, participants will have the opportunity to talk with park staff, provide individual verbal testimony with a court reporter, participate in a public hearing (also with court reporter), and submit written ideas and concerns. Parking is free unless otherwise indicated. All venues are accessible for persons with mobility impairments and a sign language interpreter will be provided with 1-week notice.
