Update on Muir Woods Traffic and Parking Management - Meeting Announcement
Posted Date: 6/16/2014

Update on Recent Communications

In April 2014 the National Park Service released the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Muir Woods National Monument Final General Management Plan (GMP)/Environmental Impact Statement (EIS).

Mill Valley City officials were concerned to see that the GMP/EIS included a proposed option of a permanent parking lot and park-run shuttle stop located on Panoramic Highway. Mayor Moulton Peters wrote a letter to Park Superintendent Dean expressing concern at this development.

In May, 2014, Superintendent Dean wrote a letter to Congressman Jared Huffman asserting that the NPS does not have any plans or intentions to build a parking lot at this site, and communicated his intention to add language to the Record of Decision for the GMP that clarifies that there will be no parking lot on Panoramic Highway.

In late May, 2014, NPS planners met with Mayor Stephanie Moulton-Peters and City Manager Jim McCann to discuss and address the City's concerns.  In early June, 2014, NPS representatives gave a brief presentation on the topic of parking and congestion at the June 2 City Council Meeting, and the City Manager wrote a letter thanking NPS representatives for their recent efforts to be responsive to Mill Valley concerns.
