Description:
Since 2019, the National Park Service has led several data collection efforts to inform management of congestion and crowding within the park. These public meetings will be an opportunity to share findings from those efforts as well as discuss ongoing studies. Park leadership will also share possible approaches to addressing traffic congestion and crowding at the park including a timed-entry pilot program for spring 2022. "Arches National Park is part of the Moab community, not separate from it. I am committed to working with the community to find solutions that promote quality visitor experiences and address congestion in a thoughtful way," said Arches National Park Superintendent Patricia Trap. "We want the local community and our stakeholders to have a seat at the table throughout the planning process - especially should we pilot a reservation system for the park."
