PATERSON, N.J. (AP) - A more than 200-page report lays out possible development plans over 20 years for a national park in northern New Jersey.

The Record newspaper says (bit.ly/1JZ6zaL) the report, released, Wednesday, outlines two plans for Paterson’s Great Falls. One focuses on the natural features of the park, including a waterfall and river corridor. The other emphasizes the area’s historical significance, including water-powered mills dating back two centuries.

The first plan is estimated to cost $32.3 million in development and $1.8 million in yearly operating expenses. The second is estimated to cost about $48.9 million in capital expenses and another $2.25 million each year.

The National Park Service will accept public input until March, after which federal officials will decide which option to choose.
