Sept. 6, 2:00 – 5:00
Sept. 26, 2:00 – 5:00
The Board will hold two public hearings in September on guidelines it has proposed for Federal outdoor developed areas. The events will provide a forum for interested parties to provide comment on the proposed guidelines which address access to trails, beaches, and picnic and camping areas developed or altered by the Federal government.
A hearing will be held in Washington, D.C. on September 6 from 2:00 to 5:00 at the Madison Hotel as part of the Board's next bi-monthly meeting. The other will take place September 26 from 2:00 to 5:00 in Indianapolis in conjunction with the National Recreation and Park Association's annual congress, as indicated in a published notice. They follow an earlier hearing held in the Denver area on July 24.
The guidelines are available for comment until October 18, 2007. A notice published with the guidelines discusses the provisions, poses questions to the public on various issues, and includes instructions for providing comments. In addition to the hearings, comments can be submitted by email, fax, or mail.
