HONONLULU, HI– The National Park Service (NPS) is seeking public feedback on a proposal to introduce paid parking at Pearl Harbor National Memorial. Generated revenue would support the park’s deferred maintenance and upkeep on the USS Arizona Memorial as well as park sites on Ford Island including the USS Utah, USS Oklahoma memorials, and historic Chief Petty Officer (CPO) Bungalows. This fee would also fund operation of the parking lots and enhance visitor services such as security, exhibits, and leveraging technology to better reach a more modern audience. The proposed parking fee would be $7.00 per day and would be managed by the National Park Service. The planned implementation date for this expanded amenity fee would be 2023. Entrance into Pearl Harbor National Memorial and the USS Arizona Memorial program remains free.

Park staff would like to hear from the public on the proposed new parking fee. This new fee would be collected under the authority of Federal Lands Recreation Enhancement Act which establishes fee collection on federal land. National Park Service sites collecting fees can retain 80% of those revenues to support projects that improve the visitor experience, the remainder is used for projects throughout the National Park Service. A 30-day public comment period will open from July 31 through August 30, 2021. Comments should be submitted through the NPS Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at:
