Tri-City-area residents can give early input on plans for a new Manhattan Project National Historical Park at an open house Feb. 4 in Richland.

Residents may share their thoughts about key stories and topics the park should address with officials from the National Park Service and the Department of Energy from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the gallery of the Richland Public Library, 955 Northgate Drive.

The new park includes Hanford’s B Reactor and other historic areas, including the former town sites of White Bluffs and Hanford on land that was seized to produce plutonium during World War II.
