SPRINGDALE, UT - Zion National Park’s visitor use management planning group has released preliminary alternative concepts. The alternatives are intended to address the unacceptable impacts to Park resources, and the quality of visitor experience associated with the unsustainable growth in visitation.
The alternative concepts were developed from public comments, National Park Service staff input, and other information gathered for this purpose, which include, the Park’s enabling legislation, and the desired conditions identified in previous Park plans.
The public is encouraged to comment on these alternative concepts during the comment period beginning July 17, 2017 through August 14, 2017. Comments can be submitted by going to the National Park Service, Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at: Once on the website, select “Open for Comment.”
Comments can also be sent via U.S. Mail to:
