The National Park Service (NPS) held the second in its series of public meetings on the creation of a Manhattan Project National Historical Park in Oak Ridge, TN, on January 26. Over 140 people attended the meeting. All who spoke favored the creation of a national park at Oak Ridge. The meeting was not a public hearing and NPS reminded all who attended that only written comments could be officially considered in the preparation of the final park study. If you would like to submit a written comment, please visit the NPS website on the draft study. The comment period will be open until March 1, 2010.

The Atomic Heritage Foundation spent three days in Oak Ridge.
