Park management plan open house is Wednesday

The Alaska Department of Natural Resources holds an open house 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 13, at the Alaska Islands and Ocean Visitor Center to discuss the revision process of the Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park Management Plan. DNR has started the planning process to revise the plan. The revision will address changing patterns in recreational use and increased visitation, and updates recommendations for park management and facility development. A trail plan also will be developed to guide trail management and development.

Participants are invited to bring a lunch and join DNR and parks staff to discuss issues, gather information and learn more about current or future goals and uses. The public also is encouraged to complete a recreational use, facilities and access questionnaire. 

To view the existing park plan, fill out the questionnaire and learn more about the revision process, visit: dnr.alaska.gov/parks/plans/kbay/kbayplan.htm. Written comments can be sent via mail, fax or email to: Kachemak Bay State Park Planning, 550 West 7th Ave., Suite 1050, Anchorage, AK 99501; fax, (907)269-8915, and email, shawana.guzenski@alaska.gov. The deadline for submitting comments is Jan. 31, 2014.
