National Park Seeks Public Comment on Wears Valley Cycle Route Network

0

Knoxville, Tenn. (WATE) – After studies were carried out on the original Wears Valley cycleway system, further public input is needed to help with planning and decision-making to improve the route system.

In 2020, park rangers determined the need for additional information about karst resources after receiving public feedback. Karst is usually associated with rock types like marble, limestone, and gypsum. A dedicated study was conducted in 2021 to gather information on these resources in the project area, and updated the EA based on these results.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park invites comments on the updated version of the EA. Officials are seeking additional information on the analysis of potential impacts, karst resources and how to protect them.

The last day to provide feedback will be March 10. Reviewing and providing comments on the revised EA can be done via the web (preferred method) or by mail.
