JEFFERSON CITY, MO., JUNE 14, 2010 -- The Missouri Department of Natural Resources invites you to bring your ideas to an informational meeting on Sunday, June 27, at Arrow Rock State Historic Site at Arrow Rock. The informational meeting will begin at 5 p.m. in the site visitor center and is open to the public.  Light refreshments will be served.

Representatives from the site will be present to answer questions and provide information on current and future plans for Arrow Rock State Historic Site and its satellite facilities, Sappington Cemetery State Historic Site and Boone’s Lick State Historic Site. Agenda items will include an update on projects that have been completed in 2010 and projects anticipated at all three sites; and an overview of the Conceptual Development Plan (CDP) process to be initiated this year.  The CDP is a “master plan” to help guide future developments and site operations. Visitors are invited to share comments on the historic site’s services and operations.

This informational meeting is part of an ongoing effort by the department to ensure citizens have input on facilities and services offered in state parks and historic sites.
