FLORENCE — A draft of the management plan for the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area will be presented to the public at 6 p.m. Monday at the Muscle Shoals City Hall.
The Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area is one of 49 nationwide that are designated by Congress in recognition of historical and cultural significance and natural resources.
“The management plan is a framework for us, a constitution that will govern how MSNHA operates,” said Judy Sizemore, the heritage area’s executive director. “It includes an interpretative plan with comprehensive actions and strategies for telling the area’s stories as well as a business plan and goals for the future.”
Sizemore and a group of consultants have spent the past 18 months compiling information for the creation of the management plant.
After the meeting, public comments will be accepted which could lead to the plan being revised before the final draft is submitted to the National Park Service, which oversees the National Heritage Area program.
