Rim of the Valley Corridor Special Resource Study
We have been evaluating the study area
to determine whether it contains nationally significant
resources that are suitable and feasible for inclusion in
the national park system as a separate park unit or as an addition
to Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area
(SMMNRA). We have completed our preliminary analysis and
want to share our findings with you. Your feedback at this
stage will help us complete our analysis and create a range
of feasible alternatives for the draft study report.
Beginning with the resource information provided by the public and agency comments,
the study team gathered existing documentation about potentially significant
natural and cultural resources throughout the study area. These preliminary findings
are summarized beginning on page 4 of this newsletter.
In a special resource study, “alternatives” are possible ways of managing resources
within the study area. As part of the study process, all of the alternatives presented
must be assessed for feasibility. Management by the NPS will be considered only if:
1) an area has adequate size and configuration to allow for resource protection and
visitor enjoyment; 2) can be administered at a reasonable cost; and 3) requires direct
NPS management, instead of protection by other public agencies or the private sector.
A range of “preliminary alternative concepts” for this study is presented in this
newsletter beginning on page 11. The “preliminary alternative concepts” are initial
ideas for the management of significant resources and public enjoyment opportunities
in the study area. With your input, the planning team will refine and further develop
these alternatives for evaluation in the draft study report.

The NPS is hosting seven public meetings throughout the study area between November 7, 2012 and December 1, 2012 to discuss the study's preliminary findings and alternative concepts. The NPS will also host a virtual public meeting online. Information on the virtual public meeting will be posted on this website when available.
