Enviro-mich:

The US Park Service will be holding meetings in April to get input on a draft
General Management Plan for Isle Royale National Park.  These meetings are the
latest step in the updating of the General Management Plan for Michigan's only
National Park, and based on previous steps in the process significant changes
are under consideration.  Issues have ranged from limitations on motorboat
usage in portions of the Park to how to deal with the declining infrastructure
at Rock Harbor and associated questions of whether to phase out services at
that site.

Copies of the draft General Management Plan will be available in mid-April
according to the Park Service.  You can request to be added to the mailing
list for these materials and notice of the exact locations of the public
meetings by contacting Isle Royale National Park at (906)-482-0984 (a voice
mail maze will test your intellectual capabilities) or by writing to the Park
at: 800 East Lakeshore Drive, Houghton, MI  49932.

Public meetings are scheduled for the following dates in the locations
identified, but I have no information on time or location -- will post when
that becomes available.

APRIL 22, ST. PAUL, MN
APRIL 23, DULUTH, MN
APRIL 24, HOUGHTON, MI
APRIL 27, ANN ARBOR, MI
