The FEIS/GMP evaluates the environmental consequences of the preferred alternative and the status quo alternative on natural and cultural resources, recreational opportunities, traditional park character and visitor experience ,and public health and safety. Alternative A, ‘‘Status Quo/ Continuation of Current Conditions,’’ maintains the status quo in the park, and describes resource conditions where existing practices continue to guide park practices. This alternative does not address resource protection planning needs including a Climbing Management Plan and a Trail Management Plan. Alternative B (Preferred Alternative [Modified]) is based on an overall goal for the park of balancing opportunities for recreation while protecting sensitive natural and cultural resources. The preferred alternative described in the DEIS/GMP has been modified based on public and agency Comments that were received, as well as additional review by the internal planning team. All interested individuals, agencies, and organizations are urged to provide comments on the FEIS/GMP. The NPS, in making a final decision regarding this matter, will consider all comments received by the closing date. Our practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review during regular business hours.
