The NPS evaluated three alternatives for managing use and development of the National Historic Site in the GMP Final
Environmental Impact Statement
Alternative A—no action.
Alternative B—The National Historic Site would greatly expand the scope of its partnerships through greater partner involvement in interpretation of the Roanoke Voyages. NPS staff would interpret other national historic site stories.
Alternative C—The preferred alternative, would implement Section 3 of Public Law 101-603, November 16, 1990 by increasing emphasis on research related to parkwide interpretive themes and legislative mandates. The National Historic Site would continue its partnership with the First Colony Foundation, establish partnerships with organizations that focus on natural and cultural resource topics, and include archeology as a significant aspect of the research program at the National Historic Site. Alternative C would provide a comprehensive park-wide approach to resource and visitor use management. Specific management zones detailing acceptable resource conditions, visitor experience, use levels, appropriate activities and development would be applied to historic site lands consistent with this concept. Under Alternative C most current cultural and natural resource management and preservation activities as well as visitor programs and opportunities will continue.
The GMP will guide the management of the monument over the next 20+ years.
The responsible official for this FEIS/GMP is the Regional Director, NPS Southeast Region, 100 Alabama Street SW., 1924 Building, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.
