The public is invited to attend a community meeting hosted by Haleakalā National Park on from 5 to 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 18, 2015, in the old Hāna School cafeteria.

The National Park Service is developing a “Foundation Document” to describe a shared understanding of what is most important about the park.


At the upcoming meeting, park staff will present an overview of the draft document, answer questions about it, and provide general park updates.

Individuals will also be able to provide comments on the draft Foundation Document at the meeting.

“Although the Foundation Document is not a decision-making document and does not include proposed actions or management strategies, it defines Haleakalā National Park’s core mission and significance, most important resources and values, and the interpretive themes that tell the park’s important stories,” park officials said in a statement.


The draft Foundation Document and a comment card can be viewed at the park’s website.  Comments can be also submitted online, by email to [email protected] with the subject line “HALE Foundation Document,” or by regular mail attention to Foundation Document, Haleakalā NP, P.O. Box 369, Makawao, HI, 96758.  All comments must be received by close of business on Friday, Feb. 20, 2015.

***NOTE: Before including a personal address, phone number, e­ mail address, or other personal identifying information in written comments, anyone providing written comment should be aware their entire comment – including their personal identifying information – may be made publicly available at any time. While anyone wishing to comment may ask the National Park Service in their comment to withhold their personal identifying information from public review, the National Park Service cannot guarantee it will be able to do so.
