Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park was created by Congress in December 2002 to help preserve, protect, and interpret a nationally significant Civil War landscape and antebellum plantation; to tell the rich story of Shenandoah Valley history; to preserve historic, natural, cultural, military, and scenic resources; and to serve as a focal point within the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields National Historic District. The park is located in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley, adjacent to the historic towns of Middletown and Strasburg, and is within the counties of Frederick, Shenandoah, and Warren. The park consists of approximately 3,712 acres that includes prehistoric resources, ecologically important areas, evidence of valley settlement and early European history of the region, examples of plantation life and culture, and significant Civil War resources. In the enabling legislation for the park, Congress established a Federal Advisory Commission to advise in the preparation of a GMP, and Key Partner organizations who may continue to own and manage properties within the park. The Draft GMP/EIS sets forth alternative visions (management alternatives) for the development and operation of Cedar Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park. This plan is the product of collaboration between the National Park Service, the Federal Advisory Commission, and the Key Partners to provide for the preservation and public enjoyment of the National Historical Park for the next 15 to 20 years. mstockstill on PROD1PC66 with NOTICES SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Diann Jacox, Superintendent, Cedar VerDate Aug<31>2005 17:30 Nov 25, 2008 Jkt 217001 Creek and Belle Grove National Historical Park, (540) 868–9176.

SUMMARY: Pursuant to Section 102(2)(C) of the National Environmental

to 20 years. The GMP/EIS will prescribe desired resource conditions and 
visitor experiences that are to be achieved and maintained throughout

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 need for new facilities such 
as maintenance, museum curation and storage, and interpretation will be 
examined. The GMP/EIS will evaluate the potential environmental effects 
of the alternative management approaches.
