Georgetown Canal Plan

The National Park Service and Georgetown Heritage are partners in restoring, reimagining and revitalizing the one-mile section of the C&O Canal NHP, which begins with a comprehensive plan. The Canal Plan, which is expected to be completed in summer 2018, will be developed in accordance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) and Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), ensuring the park’s natural and cultural resources are carefully considered and protected.
