To address these issues, the NPS will be developing a range of alternatives to restore the Mariposa Grove and improve visitor experience, consistent with goals outlined in the GMP. Grove restoration treatment plans will be informed by existing and ongoing scientific research and monitoring. Site design alternatives may include actions such as (1) relocating the parking lot away from the giant sequoias, (2) improving trails and transportation access within and to the Grove, (3) repairing, replacing, and/or removing deteriorating infrastructure and utilities, (4) redesigning traffic circulation, and (5) accommodating parking in the vicinity of South Entrance, with visitor orientation information and shuttle stops. The EIS will describe and analyze a no-action alternative (maintain current management, roads, and facilities) and several action alternatives for restoring the health of the Mariposa Grove. Alternatives will be developed consistent with applicable federal, state, and local regulations, NPS policies, and relevant park plans, including the Merced River Plan (in progress). All alternatives will include methods to minimize or avoid adverse effects to natural, cultural, and historic resources, and the ‘‘environmentally preferred’’ course of action will be identified. Written comments may be submitted online at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/ mariposagrove. Alternately, letters may be mailed to the Superintendent, Attn: Mariposa Grove EIS, P.O. Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389.
