SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NPS prepared a draft GMP/EIS for the Pipestone National Monument (national monument), pursuant to Section 102(2) (C) of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. The draft was made available for public review for 111 days (January 28—May 18, 2007) during which time the NPS distributed over 275 copies of the draft. The draft was also made available at the park offices, on the Internet, and at area libraries. Over 85 people attended the 7 public open houses and meetings. Twenty-five written comment letters were received from Agencies, organizations, Tribes, and the public. Comments from Tribes, individuals, and public agencies caused the NPS to reconsider the preferred alternative and the environmentally preferred alternative. The preferred alternative will remove most of the development from the heart of the national monument, retaining only those small facilities necessary to support quarrying and for public health and safety. Subsequent planning will determine whether to place visitor support services within or adjacent to the boundary. The maintenance area will move to a shared offsite location with another Governmental Agency and museum collections/archives will be removed from the floodplain. American Indian ceremonial use of the site continues, and the NPS will cooperatively work to preserve the historic Indian School Superintendent’s House with the owners and to restore prairie on adjacent property with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
