NPS taking Cyclorama comments

Posted: Thursday, August 26, 2010 7:20 pm

The National Park Service in Gettysburg has announced that it is taking public comment and holding open houses in September, on the future of the old Cyclorama Center.

A federal judge ruled in March that the park cannot demolish the 47-year-old structure atop Ziegler's Grove, as it planned to do as part of its General Management Plan of 1999. U.S. Judge Thomas Hogan ruled that the park did not follow environmental laws when it decided to raze the structure, designed by nationally-renowned artist Richard Neutra, because it did not consider alternatives to demolition that are required by federal law.

    The cyclorama can be used as a museum to hold additional artifacts held over from the new vistor center. It shouldn't be relocated because the current original site is historic.

    Let's see the people who want this eyesore step up to the plate. If they want it, let them come and get it. AND MOVE IT! It needs to be OFF of the battlefield. I'm glad the superintendent is doing this by the numbers. This way all the whiners will have had their chance.
