Concerns About Merced River Plan

Sonora, CA — Yosemite National Park will soon create a new Merced River Plan, and this was a topic of conversation at Tuesday’s Tuolumne County Supervisors meeting.

The Supervisors voted to send a letter to Yosemite Superintendent Don Neubacher asking that the Park study the impacts that different proposals could have on gateway communities and consider using gateway advisory groups to develop plan alternatives.

The new Merced River Plan is expected to include a wild and scenic river corridor encompassing a quarter mile on either side of the Merced River. There may also be changes to the transportation system, such as embracing the use of tour buses and public transportation into the park.
