A range of reasonable alternatives for managing the Memorial will be developed through this planning process and will include, at a minimum, a no-action and a preferred alternative. Major issues the GMP/EIS will address include changes in visitor use patterns and special events, adequacy and sustainability of existing facilities for visitor opportunities and activities and for Memorial operations, and partnership roles and opportunities.

The GMP/EIS will evaluate VerDate Aug<31>2005 19:32 Nov 21, 2008 Jkt 217001 the potential environmental effects of the alternative management approaches. As the first phase of the planning process, the NPS is beginning to scope the issues to be addressed in the GMP/ EIS.
