  • The National Park Service (NPS) and a team of state and local government partners are requesting public input to identify potential new sites for public access to the Chesapeake Bay and its tributaries.
    This will include sites appropriate for boat ramps, fishing access, places to swim and picnic, or bird watch. NPS developed an interactive web-based mapping tool for the public to locate, identify, and suggest new sites. The map includes known points of existing public access, as well as previously submitted ideas for new opportunities.
    During previous open comment periods in June and July 2011 and December 2013, around 300 new access areas were identified.
    The deadline for public input is Dec. 1.
