General Management Plan Amendment Public Scoping Comments

The National Park Service (NPS) initiated the formal National Environmental Policy Act process and began a 30-day public scoping period for the General Management Plan Amendment for Point Reyes National Seashore and the north district of Golden Gate National Recreation Area with the publication of the Notice of Intent in the Federal Register on October 31, 2018. The 30-day comment period closed on November 30, 2018. During this time, two open house meetings were held at different locations near the park. The public was encouraged to submit comments through the NPS's Planning, Environment, and Public Comment (PEPC) website. Comments were also accepted at the meetings, by US mail, and in person at the park. Over 1,350 pieces of correspondence were received during the comment period. The report below describes the public scoping comment period and presents a summary of public comments received. This report, along with the report prepared in February 2018, constitute a comprehensive summary of substantive comments that were submitted during this and the initial public comment periods, and will assist the NPS in preparing the draft EIS for the General Management Plan Amendment.
