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 January 10, 2018, the additional federal legislation passed - needed to authorize the planned visitor's center and administrative offices to be located in the selected buildings within the armory complex.
