(SitNews) Ketchikan, Alaska - The Alaska Department of Natural Resources, Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation will host a public scoping meeting in Ketchikan at the Ted Ferry Civic Center on December 9, 2010 at 7:00 PM to introduce the Totem Bight State Historical Park (SHP) Master Development Plan.

A general overview of the plan, goals and objectives, and general timeline will be presented. Participants will be given the opportunity to ask questions, discuss concerns, and submit comments.

The Alaska Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation is preparing a master development plan for Totem Bight State Historical Park. This plan will set forth management guidelines and recommendations for facility development in the park. The previous general development plan for the park, adopted in 1977, needs updating. This new master development plan will recognize the facilities that have been built or improved in the last 30 years, propose future development, and address some of the issues the park is facing with increased visitor use.

Comments on this plan will be received through Friday, December 17, 2010 at close of business.
