MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont officials are asking the public to weigh in on a new management plan for Mt. Philo State Park.

The Vermont Agency of Natural Resources is working on a new long-range management plan the 232-acre park in Charlotte.

Officials began the process in 2012 with a resource inventory to identify natural communities, rare or endangered species and sensitive areas. Land uses were also mapped.

Officials are asking Vermonters to fill out an online survey about the park by April 6.

The agency hopes to finish development of their draft plan by this summer.

Mt. Philo is Vermont’s oldest state park and a popular destination for camping, hiking, dog walking, sledding and snowmobiling.
