SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

The FILA is owned by the NPS and operated by the National First Ladies' Library. The park encompasses the Ida Saxton McKinley House. The Education and Resource Center (formerly the City National Bank Building) is owned and operated by the National First Ladies' Library, and is part of the visitor experience at the park. The park was established to preserve and interpret the role and history of FILA.

The purpose of the general management plan is to set forth the basic management philosophy for the park and to provide strategies for addressing issues and achieving identified management objectives. The GMP/EIS describes and analyzes the environmental impacts of the proposed action and two other action alternatives for the future management direction of the park. A no-action alternative is also evaluated.

Our practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their home address from the record, which we will honor to the extent allowable by law. There may also be circumstances where 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.
