GTNP extends Moose-Wilson Corridor Plan public review and comment period

(Moose, Wyo.) - Yesterday, Grand Teton National Park announced that they extended the public review and comment period for the Moose-Wilson Corridor Draft Comprehensive Management Plan/ Environmental Impact Statement (Draft Plan/EIS) through January 30, 2016. The comment period, which began on October 29, was initially scheduled to end on December 29. The extension brings the total public review and comment period to 93 days. “We are looking for substantive and thoughtful feedback that will help us make a well informed final decision,” said Superintendent David Vela. “This extension beyond the upcoming holiday season will help support these interests.” The planning team will host an informational and interactive public open house this Wednesday, December 9, from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. at the Teton County Library. According to a recent release issued by the park, while all public comments are informative, the planning team is particularly interested in feedback regarding the accuracy and adequacy of the information and analysis presented in the Draft Plan/EIS. The planning team is looking for any new information, suggestions, or ideas that will improve the analysis and ultimately strengthen the Plan/EIS. Once a Record of Decision is signed in the fall of 2016, the document will guide future management of the corridor.
