Interpretive planning establishes guidelines and a long-range vision for maintaining and developing interpretive media for sites. Our plans outline the goals and objectives for the program or site, consider the needs and desires of visitors, outline thematic guidelines, and suggest appropriate interpretive media. During the planning process, we work closely with project leaders to ensure their objectives are met. Each plan is unique and tailored to meet the site's needs.
A few examples are listed below:
Scenic Byway Planning
In addition to interpretive planning for scenic byways, we have also produced several corridor partnership plans for state scenic byways. A corridor partnership plan identifies the key intrinsic qualities of a byway and serves as a guide for the management, promotion, and enhancement of those qualities over time. The process is guided by local communities, businesses, organizations, and public agencies and ultimately is an expression of their collective desires.
Historic Preservation Planning
Preservation plans help meet the Division of Parks and Outdoor Recreation's goal to "sustain Alaska's cultural, ecological, scenic and scientific assets through proactive stewardship pursuant to the division's parks and programs." These plans provide guidelines to help meet short- and long-term objectives for the preservation and enhancement of cultural and historical resources within Alaska State Parks.
