Yosemite National Park hosts Public Site Visits for the Communication Data Network EA

Date: July 9, 2009

Yosemite National Park invites the public to participate in a tour of proposed sites for the Parkwide Communication Data Network (CDN) Environmental Assessment (EA). Public scoping occurred in fall 2008, and preparation of an EA is currently underway. 

The purpose of the CDN project is to improve Yosemite’s internal communications system by developing a more reliable, efficient network that can support all the park’s communication needs. The new network will employ modern technology to provide a uniform platform for computer LAN data, emergency radio communications, security and safety video systems, telephony, alarm systems, and data collection.

The project includes improvements at existing communication sites, as well as a few new sites, which will be the focus of the tour:  Tuolumne Meadows/May Lake Junction, Hetch Hetchy Entrance Station, and Yosemite Valley.  We will explore how we can best deliver service at these sites and discuss design options, issues and concerns.
July 21, 1pm - 4pm, Hetch Hetchy Entrance Station
July 22, 1pm - 4pm, Tuolumne Meadows (Wilderness Office), then May Lake Junction.
July 23, 9am - 12pm, Yosemite Valley (west of AT&T Building at Yosemite Village)

To sign-up, please call 209/379-1369, or e-mail.  Park admission fee will be waived for those attending.  For more information, please visit www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/cdn.htm
