Public comments on Bryant Creek State Park and others now available online
Public comments on the future of three Missouri State Parks properties, including Bryant Creek State Park in Douglas County just north of Rockbridge, are now available online at mostateparks.com. The three properties, which have not been developed and are currently closed, also include Ozark Mountain State Park in Taney County and Jay Nixon State Park in Reynolds County.
The comments were gathered during a public comment period that was open from Dec. 4, 2017, through Jan. 6, 2018. Missouri State Parks kicked off the comment period with a series of public meetings to discuss the future of the three properties. The public could submit comments about the properties in three different ways: by completing and submitting cards available at public meetings, or by completing an online survey on the Missouri State Parks’ website. A news release from the Missouri Department of Natural Resources said a few individuals and public entities also chose to send emails or other correspondence directly to Missouri State Parks.
All of the public comments received for each of the state park properties are provided on the Missouri State Parks’ website. Other details about each property are also available, including unique natural resources, detailed property descriptions and different management options under consideration.
