Needles, CA: Route 66 Corridor Management Plan and National Scenic Byway Meeting is tonight in Needles, California.

A public scoping meeting regarding the Corridor Management Plan and National Scenic Byway designation for the historic and world famous Route 66 highway will be held on Thursday, February 27th, 2014 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm PT at the Needles High School Cafeteria located at 1600 Washington Street in Needles, California.

The California Historic Route 66 Association and the Bureau of Land Management have teamed up with both governmental and non-governmental organization partners to help preserve the historic and world famous highway known as Route 66 through the Mojave Desert of San Bernardino County, California and develop strategies for educating visitors about its significant cultural and natural landscape features.

A Corridor Management Plan is being prepare for the 153 mile segment of the historic and world famous Route 66 that extends from the western city limits of Barstow, California to the Colorado River near Needles, California.

The California Historic Route 66 Association and the Bureau of Land Management have have scheduled public scoping meetings to solicit public comment from local, county, state and Federal stakeholders, elected officials, and American Indian tribes to identify issues and concerns that should be analyzed in the development of the Corridor Management Plan.

Some of the question the group would like to know about from the public are the following:

What is particularly unique about Route 66?

What are some of the stories about Route 66 and your community related to Route 66

What would be your ideal vision of Route 66?

What is something you would like to see be saved related to Route 66, such as an historic building or landmark along the Route 66, that is so to be gone forever?

What kinds of things should be done in your community to capture some of the visitors that are coming to Route 66?

What are some of the limitations that have to be overcome to increase visitation to your community?

These meetings regarding the corridor management plan is an opportunity for the public to think ahead for the future of Route 66 and how might Route 66 be preserved and enhanced over time so that more and more people can be interested about the history of this highway, learn about the many stories behind the highway, and stop into the communities along the highway to learn about how the community adapted to the changes of the highway.

There will also be a web-based presentation scheduled for Thursday, February 27th, 2014 at 1:00pm PT to provide additional opportunity to participate for those unable to make the meetings in person.

The meeting will be hosted by Lardner-Klein, the Corridor Management Plan contractor.
