OLYMPIC NATIONAL PARK — Public comment is being taken now on a proposed revision of Olympic National Park’s Wildland Fire Management Plan.
A public meeting is planned from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Port Angeles Senior Center, 328 E. Seventh St. Staff will offer a short presentation followed by an open house to answer questions.
The public comment period ends March 2. Comments can be mailed or hand-delivered to Superintendent, Olympic National Park – FMP Scoping, 600 East Park Ave., Port Angeles, WA 98362.
Two alternatives are under consideration: to take no action or to update the plan to meet the most current National Park Service and federal policies. The plan provides park managers guidance for making fire decisions. Preliminary alternatives can be reviewed at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/FMPscoping.
