Prosser Balloon RallyOn January 21 from 2-4 and from 7-9 the National Park Service will host an open house at the Red Lion Hotel Richland Richland Hanford House to hear input from the community about designing one of the Manhattan Project Sites as a unit of the National Park System. The Manhattan Project Sites include Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, Hanford Site in Washington, Oak Ridge Reservation in Tennessee, and sites in Dayton, Ohio. All these sites played a big role in World War II as well as in ushering in a new age, the atomic age. At this time there is not a site to recognize the impact and the importance of the Manhattan Project. For this reason the Department of the Interior and the Department of Energy have begun the Manhattan Project Sites special Resource Study to look at the preservation and interpretation of the sites. When a plan has been made about the involvement the National Parks Service will have in the project and how one or all of the sites will be preserved the plan will go before Congress and they will make the final decision. If you would like to submit ideas to be considered for the project you can either go to the open house at the Red Lion Hotel in Richland on January 21 during the time 2-4 or 7-9. Or you may submit comments or ideas to the Manhattan Project Sites Special Resource Study Website. Posted by Colleen Lane on
