The National Park Service will host a public meeting in San Jose to discuss the future of the Tule Lake Unit.

The Tule Lake Unit is one of America's newest national parks. It preserves the site of the Tule Lake Segregation Center and tells the history of the forced removal, incarceration, and segregation of Japanese Americans during WWII. Designated in 2008 by President George W. Bush, the Tule Lake Unit is a significant reminder of the importance of civil and human rights during times of crisis.

The National Park Service has recently released the Tule Lake Unit General Management Plan and Environmental Assessment for public review and comment. The plan provides long-term guidance for how the National Park Service will develop and manage the unit and how the stories of the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII will be told at Tule Lake. The planning process began in 2013 and includes public comments from 600 people.

This meeting is part of a series being held by the National Park Service about the Tule Lake Unit in California, Oregon, Washington, New York, and online. Anyone interested in attending is welcome.

Current information relevant to the plan and the Tule Lake Unit is available at parkplanning.nps.gov/TuleLakeGMP. Comments may be submitted online or sent to tule_superintendent@nps.gov. The public-comment period closes on February 10, 2017. See press release for full meeting schedule and locations.
