MUSCLE SHOALS — After almost two years of information gathering, interviews and research, the management plan for the Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area is ready to be presented to the public.
A draft version of the plan will be presented during a public meeting at 6 p.m. today at the Muscle Shoals City Hall.
“The management plan is a framework for us, a constitution that will govern how the MSNHA operates,” said Judy Sizemore, the heritage area’s executive director. “It includes an interpretive plan with comprehensive actions and strategies for telling the area’s stories as well as a business plan and goals for the future.”
The Muscle Shoals National Heritage Area is one of 49 across the country, designated by Congress in recognition of their historical and cultural significance and natural resources.
The draft plan will also be presented during a meeting at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Turner-Surles Community Center in Decatur.
