New chapter of Freedom’s Frontier strategic plan available for comments

February 26, 2009


A new section of the Freedom’s Frontier National Heritage Area management plan is posted online for the public to view and comment on.

The section, called “Power of Place,” explores the natural history and geography of the heritage area. The area covers 41 counties in eastern Kansas — including Douglas County — and western Missouri.

Draft sections of the plan are posted at

The Web site also has a link where readers can post comments. An executive summary of the plan also is on the same site. Comments about it should be made by March 8.

The plan will guide the heritage area’s activities for the next decade.

Additional sections will be posted over the next few weeks. Once completed, the plan will be submitted to the National Park Service this spring. Once approved by the park service, it will work with the heritage area providing technical assistance that to obtain federal funding. Other information can be found at
