POSTPONED: Merced River Plan - May 10, 2008 - Public Planning Workshop
To all parties interested in the Merced River Comprehensive Management Plan:
The new Merced River Plan public planning workshop scheduled for Saturday, May 10, 2008, from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm in Yosemite Valley, has been POSTPONED. Park management continues to consult with the National Park Service Pacific West Regional Director, Interior Department attorneys, and the Department of Justice on the implications of the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruling on the 2005 Revised Merced River Plan. In order to honor the time, energy, and costs borne by participants, park management wants to have clear direction on the scope, process, and substance of the next version of the plan before convening another workshop. The park is working hard to stay on schedule and will have more information to the public soon.

Information will be distributed once a new date for the next public planning workshop has been determined. Thank you for your understanding. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Elexis Mayer, Project Manager by phone at 209/379-1377 or by email, or Linda Dahl, Yosemite National Park Chief of Planning by email.
