NORTH PLATTE, Neb. – The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking input on a draft master plan being developed to improve Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park and State Recreation Area in North Platte.
The master plan covers potential new development, programming and recreational activities that enhance the experience for future visitors. The plan incorporates new interpretation and programming goals centered around the life of William “Buffalo Bill” Cody and his home at Scout’s Rest Ranch.
The public is invited to attend a virtual public meeting from 5:30-7 p.m. on Sept. 23 via Zoom. Participants will be required to register at outdoornebraska.gov/buffalobillranch or outdoornebraska.gov/buffalobillsra. Those interested can sign up now for the meeting.
The public meeting will consist of a presentation of the purpose, vision and goals of the plan and several potential development concept designs for the historical park and recreation area. Attendees can provide feedback on several proposed development ideas, which are unique to each park area.
Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park and State Recreation Area are very important family destinations and tourist attractions for the city of North Platte and surrounding areas. Game and Parks encourage our partners, park guests and anyone with an interest in the park areas to share your thoughts on the draft plans to improve the parks areas for future generations.
