This guide is a timeline for the process of Coltsville petitioning to become part of the National Park Service. The major focus is on the federal legislation driving this process. Public Law 113-291 includes a series of "Conditions for Establishment" that must be met before the park may be formally established. The National Park Service (NPS) is in the process of meeting the criteria.
As of October, 2017, additional federal legislation is needed to authorize the planned visitor's center and administrative offices to be located in the selected buildings within the armory complex.
As of August 7, 2015, The National Park Service (NPS) does not have a website for Coltsville National Historical Park, as it is not yet an official park. Much of the Coltsville NPS information is available on its site, but not necessarily under "Coltsville National Historical Park".
