Twenty-eight cabins in the Old Faithful area would be rehabilitated for visitor use under a proposal that Yellowstone National Park officials are examining.
The cabins have been used by concession workers for about a decade. But under the new plan, a dormitory would be built for workers away from Old Faithful.
Details of the plans are found in an environmental assessment the park has released for public review and comment. Under the proposal, a decision from the 1985 Old Faithful Development Concept Plan that called for the removal of all cabins from the area would be revised.
The environmental assessment and an electronic form to submit comments on the Internet can be found on the National Park Service Planning, Environment, and Public Comment website at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/yell.
A hard copy of the EA is available upon request by calling 307-344-2221, or by writing to the Old Faithful Cabin Repurposing Plan EA, National Park Service, P.O. Box 168, Yellowstone National Park WY 82190.
Written comments may be submitted through the PEPC website, in person or by mail. Comments will not be accepted by phone, fax, or e-mail. All public comments must be received or postmarked by midnight, Feb. 26.
The National Park Service will make a decision on the final plan.
