Zion National Park has released a draft of the South Entrance Monument Site Reconfiguration Environmental Assessment (EA) for public review. The alternatives portion of this plan describes a range of actions, such as redesigning the South Entrance Monument site and adjacent parking area. The South Entrance Monument Site would be redesigned to enhance visitor safety, expand cultural resource protection measures and help mitigate factors contributing to vehicle congestion experienced at the South Entrance.
 
The public review and comment period begins April 17, 2017 and goes through May 17, 2017, to help identify any concerns or suggestions regarding the proposed project.
 
The EA is available in electronic form on the NPS Planning, Environment & Public Comment (PEPC) website at https://parkplanning.nps.gov/ and may also be located in print at the Zion Human History Museum. Comments may be submitted online through PEPC or through the mail by writing to:
