SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As established, the Historic Site consists of lands and interests therein comprising the Central High School campus and adjacent properties in Little Rock, Arkansas. Congress established the Historic Site to preserve, protect, and interpret for the benefit, education, and inspiration of present and future generations, Central High School and its role in the integration of public schools and the development of the Civil Rights movement in the United States.

The purpose of the general management plan is to set forth the basic management philosophy for the Historic Site and to provide the strategies for addressing issues and achieving identified management objectives. The DGMP/DEIS describes and analyzes the environmental impacts of a proposed action and three action alternatives for the future management direction of the Historic Site. A no action alternative is also evaluated.

Persons wishing to comment may do so by any one of several methods. They may attend the open houses noted above. They may mail comments to Superintendent, Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site, Federal Building, Box 3527, 700 West Capitol Ave., Little Rock, AR 72201. They also may comment via e-mail to dave_forney@nps.gov (include name and return address in the e-mail message). Finally, they may hand-deliver comments to the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site visitor center at 2125 Daisy L. Gatson Bates Drive, Little Rock, AR 72201. The NPS' practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review during regular business hours. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their home address from the record, which we will honor to the extent allowable by law. There also may be circumstances in which we would withhold from the record a respondent's identity, as allowable by law. If you wish us to withhold your name and/or address, you must state this prominently at the beginning of your comment. However, we will not consider anonymous comments. We will make all submissions from organizations or businesses, and from individuals identifying themselves as representatives or officials of organizations or businesses available for public inspection in their entirety.

The responsible official is Mr. William Schenk, Midwest Regional Director, National Park Service.
