Public meeting on Manhattan Project Park

graphitereactor.jpgThe National Park Service and the Department of Energy will hold a public meeting in Oak Ridge on Monday (Feb. 1) to get input on planning for the Manhattan Project National HIstorical Park. The public meeting will begin at 5:30 p.m. in the Food Court of Oak Ridge High School.

Oak Ridge is one of three Manhattan Project sites hosting the national park, and public meetings will be held later this month at the other sites, Hanford, Wash., and Los Alamos, N.M.

“The public is encouraged to come to the meetings and meet with representatives of the NPS and the DOE to share their thoughts about the key stories and interpretive ideas related to the park,” the Park Service said in its announcement.
