Should the Delaware Water Gap National Recreation Area become a National park?

The Delaware Water Gap National recreation Area (DWGNRA) is under siege by from the Sierra Club. John Donohue, former superintendent of DWGNRA, has joined forces with the Sierra Club to change the designation of DWGNRA to National Park. The proposal for this change leaves many issues to be explained BEFORE it becomes law. For example:

  • What is the economic impact to our communities in Sussex County?
  • What is agricultural impact (numbers on deer damage and crop loss)?
  • What is the environmental impact on our communities?
  • How will the park be funded?
  • Who will pay for maintenance and improvements on the entry roads, state and county highways leading into the park?
  • Where is the Lenape Preserve located, how many acres, who will manage and control the preserve and how will it be managed?
  • What is fee structure for entry and where will fees collection stations be located?
  • What are the permits fees for fishing and other activities?
  • What are the plans to improve park infrastructure – roads, bridges, campgrounds, river access and trails?
  • What agencies will be responsible for completing infrastructure projects?
  • What are the plans to acquire more property, absorb state parks in New Jersey and Pennsylvania, and fish and game lands in New Jersey and Pennsylvaniia?
  • Does the plan call for expanding the existing boundaries of DWGNRA?

Pick an issue…and we’ll talk about it.
