Delivering input on the Manhattan Project Park

IMG_5311A pretty big crowd showed up Monday evening to provide their input on planning for the Manhattan Project National Historical Park. The National Park Service and the U.S. Department of Energy, partners in developing the park, sponsored the meeting at Oak Ridge High School’s Food Court. Participants were asked to provide written comments about their priorities for the park, what they’d like to see, etc.  The park was officially created in November, and Tracy Atkins, the acting superintendent of the park, was on hand and spoke to the group. Members of the team are in Oak Ridge for a couple of days this week and then they’ll travel west to hold similar meetings at the park’s other two sites — Los Alamos, N.M, and Hanford, Wash.
