    As a resident of Oswego, I know that the Fort being dubbed as a figure in the National Park System would increase the pride that Oswegonians already feel for this historic place. The past of the Fort, as formidable and positive as being a safe haven for Holocaust survivors in the 1940s, should be referenced as an example for this country's leaders as we discuss aiding refugees around the world.

    National Parks are an essential part of preserving our history, and wildlife.

    This bill threatens to remove this site from being a historic site probably for the real estate industry.

    Anything of this historical significance would make a great national park for the next generations to visit and learn about

    I think it is important to recognize the historical places because it is a good reminder of who we, as a nation, are and where, as a nation, we come from.

    Do more national parks mean more potential drilling/fracking sites for the oil industry at this point?

    Resource study indicates to me that there is a possible this site could be stripped of its historical site status and repurposed for real estate sales. Unless there is some guarantee that this study would maintain its status as historical and under preservation, I vote nay.

    I support designating and protecting areas of historical and/or environmental significance.

    This is a well recognized historical site, and the evaluation is an important step towards making it a national park. The full text of the bill is here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/46/text

    National parks are important and more are needed. Please set aside this land for our future generations to enjoy.

    Though more parks and public historical sites would be great, the "resource" part of this bill worries me. It would be terrible for the survey to come up with the conclusion that everything should be torn down for housing or resource mining.

    There needs to be more detail on this bill. It's impossible to tell what the desired end result of this study is - it's to determine whether making the site part of the NPS is "feasible," and they could very well determine that it's not. Note other parts of this bill stating that the study will "consider other alternatives for preservation, protection, and interpretation of the site by Federal, State, or local governmental entities or private and nonprofit organizations;" I also would want to know which group would be conducting the study.

    Seems like a specially worded bill to destroy the place once it is deemed unsuitable

    The more national parks, the better! As long as more funding is given to keep them up, of course.

    It's not much to determine what's there. Resource scarcity may determine that extraction holds a higher priority than historical or environmental preservation
