Concession Facilities Construction

The National Park Service is proposing to construct new permanent facilities on the Concession Land Assignment that would support Denali National Park and Preserve's current and future transportation and other visitor services concession. Approximately 0.6 acres of land would be disturbed. The proposed facilities include a Maintenance Shop, Commissary, Employee Fitness Center and Recycling Center.

The Concessions Land Assignment (CLA) (see Figure 2) is park land and the facilities thereon assigned to the concessionaire to carry out and support visitor services within the park. The CLA's main purpose is to support and facilitate bus fleet operations and maintenance in the park. Additional activities which occur on the CLA include housing, dining, and recreation facilities for Denali concession employees. The concessionaire is required to carry out a building and utilities maintenance operation for the land assignment facilities and other directed services throughout the park.

A new Maintenance Shop and covered storage area would replace in entirety the current ATCO and trailer that are dilapidated and unsuited for the purpose. The old facilities would be removed from the park and the site location would be reutilized as open space.

A new Recycling Center building would provide a centralized collection and processing facility for concessions and park recycled waste materials.
A new Commissary building would be built to support food and beverage services required of the concessioner, plus provide additional storage for the Employee Dining Room and Morino Grill, a public restaurant located in the Denali Visitor Center campus.

A new employee Fitness Center building would be constructed.
