CALL TO ACTION
You have a date this Friday at 1 pm Pacific time. I will take some credit for asking the park to host a webinar on the cables. So they are doing it. It will be dedicated to answering YOUR questions about the 2012 Half Dome cables permit lottery plan and the Half Dome Trail Stewardship Plan Environmental Assessment.
This is not an open house. No, there will be no long formal presentation or room full of people on site. Plan on about 3-4 key managers in an office. There will be a facilitator just to keep things going. This will be ALL HALF DOME. If you give a plug nickel about the cables, you must show your interest. I have many questions and decided not to submit my formal comment to the EA until near the end of the period. I’ve requested a hard copy of the 132 page EA (checking the mailbox daily) so I can mark it up like I did in college. I think much will come out in the weeks ahead.
I’ve gotten to know several of the rangers involved and they are really trying to balance many concerns. There will be opportunities to ask the Wilderness Manager and project managers questions about the plan and the 2012 interim permit system. About 25 people have registered – let’s jam the circuits!
