LMP Administrative Change
The purpose of this document is to add the newly designated Saint Francis Dam Disaster Monument Memorial boundary to the Forest Plan in an administrative change. In 2019, Congress authorized the creation of the Saint Francis Dam Disaster National Memorial for the purpose of honoring the victims of the Saint Francis Dam disaster. Ongoing planning and development of a National Memorial/Monument at the site in the San Francisquito Canyon has been a collaborative effort.
