The National Park Service seeks public comment on a proposal to develop seasonal housing for concessions employees in Yellowstone National Park at the West Entrance and Canyon Village.

The Environmental Assessment for the proposed project would evaluate two alternatives. In Alternative A (no action), no additional seasonal housing would be constructed. Alternative B would include construction of up to 25 recreational vehicle (RV) sites and a bath house adjacent to the Yellowstone General Stores warehouse near the West Entrance for concessions employees. Additionally, the proposal would redevelop and modify an abandoned loop at the Canyon Campground to house Canyon Lodge and Cabins employees. A combination of up to 14 RV sites and six modular homes would be integrated into the camper loop, and existing comfort stations would be rehabilitated to provide shower and laundry facilities.

Comments must be received by February 28, 2019. Comments may be submitted online at: https://parkplanning.nps.gov/concessionshousing, by hand-delivery, or by mail. Comments will not be accepted by fax, email, or by any other means.

Hand-deliver comments during business hours to: Albright Visitor Center, Attention: Concession Housing EA, Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 82190.

Mail comments to: Compliance Office, Attention: Concession Housing EA, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park, Wyoming 82190.
