The National Park Service (NPS) is in the process of preparing a Stonewall National Monument park management planning document, and is asking for input from the community.
To participate in this effort, the public is invited to attend a meeting on Wednesday, January 17, 2018, 6:30 pm at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center located at 208 W 13 Street, New York, NY.
During the Public Meeting, a formal presentation will highlight the planning process and the public will have the opportunity to ask questions. Information about how to submit comments on the plan will be provided during the presentation. NPS encourages all interested citizens to play a role in outlining the park’s future by sharing their thoughts on the importance of Stonewall National Monument as well as issues that could potentially impact future preservation and commemoration of the site.
The park management planning document, also known as a foundation document, identifies a national park unit’s core purpose and significance; its most important resources and values; and the interpretive themes that tell its unique and significant story. These foundation documents help park staff and the public to clearly identify the essential information necessary for park management to consider when determining future planning efforts, outlining key planning issues, and protecting resources and values that are integral to a park’s purpose and identity.
