Press Release by Alaska DNR

DNR Banner(Anchorage, AK) – The Alaska Department of Natural Resources will host an open house on Tuesday, April 29, to gather public input on its planning process for revising the Kachemak Bay State Park and State Wilderness Park Management Plan. The meeting will be from 5-7 p.m. at the Multi Purpose Complex located at 259 Seldovia Street in Seldovia.

The purpose of the plan revision is to address issues the park is facing due to changing patterns in recreational use and increased visitation, as well as updating recommendations for park management and facility development. Additionally, a trail plan will be developed to provide specific guidance for trail management and development in these areas. An initial open house was held in Homer in November 2013 and additional scoping events will be scheduled in Homer, Port Graham, and Nanwalek.
Planning staff will be available at the Seldovia meeting to discuss issues, gather information, and learn more about current or future goals and uses related to the management plan revision. The open house is an opportunity for the planning team to include local input in the early stages of plan development.
