Fort Hunt Park Meeting Set

— George Washington Memorial Parkway, a unit of the National Park Service, is conducting public scoping on three new alternative concepts for the Fort Hunt Park Site Development Plan Environmental Assessment/Assessment of Effect.

An Open House public meeting will be held Wednesday, June 27, 6:30 - 8:30 p.m. at Fort Hunt Elementary School, 8832 Linton Lane.

The meeting is being held so interested public can speak to staff, learn more about the proposed alternative concepts and submit written comments.

New alternative concepts seek to enhance visitor awareness and understanding of Fort Hunt Park’s resources while also sustaining many of the park’s existing recreational amenities.

This public scoping period will conclude on Saturday, July 28. During this period, the public is invited to identify concerns they may have with the proposed alternative concepts as well as offer suggestions.

Written comments can be submitted electronically at the NPS’s Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/forthunt. Written comments may also be mailed to: Superintendent, George Washington Memorial Parkway, Turkey Run Park, McLean, VA 22101. Attn: Fort Hunt Park EA/AoE. Mailed comments must be postmarked by Saturday, July 28, to receive consideration.

More details about the project are available on the NPS Planning, Environment and Public Comment website at: http://parkplanning.nps.gov/forthunt.
