Gazette Premium Content Public comment sought on Clinton Birthplace site

Associated Press Updated: June 2, 2014 at 7:45 am

HOPE, Ark. (AP) — The National Park Service is accepting public comment on possible changes or improvements to the Clinton Birthplace National Historic Site in Hope.

The public comment period opened last week and runs through June 30. The park service hopes to identify projects that can document the historic character of the neighborhood as experienced by former president Bill Clinton.

Clinton was born in Hope in 1946 and lived in the home with his mother and grandparents for four years.

The park service says the neighborhood has changed over the past several decades, moving from residential to more commercial development.

The home first opened to the public in 1997 and was officially designated as a National Historic Site in 2011.
