Results of Recent Management Plan Meetings
posted: December 01, 1998
The recent round of planning meetings to initiate the General Management Plan for Pinnacles National Monument are complete (see "Upcoming Management Plan Meetings" in the "Old News" section).
Several FOP members attended and the result in a nutshell is good news. As reported by David Rubine, who attended the Monterey meeting: "Gary Candelaria seemed unbelievably open to our input and minimal regulations." Gary indicated a genuine desire to maintain our successful ongoing climber/ NPS relationship.
Although the deadline for "scoping" the Management Plan has come and gone Gary made it clear the climbing part of the plan was months away from being addressed. He also indicated that FOP and the general climbing community could present its concerns and input at any time.
FOP plans to resubmit the plan it proposed a while ago along with any new input you care to give us. We will post a copy of that plan as soon as possible for your feedback.
