APPOMATTOX, Va. (AP) - The National Park Service will hold a public meeting this week on an ongoing study of Appomattox Court House National Historical Park.

The boundary and environmental assessment is required for every national park.

The News & Advance ( ) reports that the public meeting is scheduled for 5 p.m. Thursday at the Appomattox Community Center.

The study will look at whether the 1,700-acre park’s boundary should be expanded, and what land could be included. The park service also is seeking public input on what are the biggest challenges threatening the protection of cultural and natural resources near the park.

Congress would have to approve any boundary adjustment.

A public comment period ends July 17.
