Zion National Park prepares a variety of planning and environmental documents to help guide management of park resources and visitor use and activity. Many of these documents are available at the Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website. The PEPC site provides for public involvement in the NPS planning process.
Planning in the National Park Service guides informed and insightful decisions that provide relevant and timely direction to park management, and informs future decision-making for each national park system unit in accord with its stated mission. Planning also provides methods and tools for resolving issues in ways that minimize conflicts and promotes mutually beneficial solutions - solutions that articulate how public enjoyment of the parks can be part of a strategy for ensuring that resources are protected unimpaired for future generations.
