CRATER LAKE NATIONAL PARK – Public comments on a plan to rehabilitate the historic superintendent’s house at Crater Lake National Park are being requested by the National Park Service.
The project is planned at the house, which is a listed National Historic Landmark, as part of a larger plan to create a Crater Lake Science and Learning Center. The superintendent’s house will be used for the center’s administrative staff and for public use. Construction is scheduled to begin next spring.
The building had been used for seasonal employees until recent years, when it fell into a state of disrepair and was determined to be uninhabitable. It does not meet current standards for electrical, mechanical, fire and seismic criteria.
The project will provide for the building’s preservation, stabilization and adaptive reuse.
To review the environmental assessment visit the park’s Web site at www.nps.gov/crla/SuptResidenceEA.htm. Copies of the assessment are also available at the park and public libraries in Klamath Falls and elsewhere in Oregon.
People with questions or wanting to request a paper or CD copy of the assessment should contact Michael Justin at 594-3008 or by e-mail at Michael_Justin@nps.gov.
