SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The NPS studied a no-action and three action management alternatives that vary in how Delta One and Delta Nine might be presented to visitors. The concept for alternative 4, the preferred alternative, commemorates the Cold War by presenting Delta One in its ready-alert status and by presenting Delta Nine in its stand-down appearance. The plan includes the preferred location for a 7,700 square-foot visitor/administrative facility to be placed north of exit 131 in 2 stages. The first stage starts with constructing a stand-alone visitor center of 5,300 square feet. Its design will be such that the administrative portion of the second stage can be added at a later date. A shuttle system will be developed for operation after such a time as the level of visitation warrants. In lieu of a shuttle, visitors will drive to both Delta One and Delta Nine. Visitors benefit from this plan because of opportunities to see and learn about the missile sites as symbols that commemorate the Cold War including guided tours, onsite interpretive media, and interpretive programs at the envisioned visitor/ administrative facility.

administrative portion of the second stage can be added at a later 
date. A shuttle system will be developed for operation after such a 
time as the level of visitation warrants. In lieu of a shuttle, 
visitors will drive to both Delta One and Delta Nine. Visitors benefit
