Replace the Big Oak Flat Welcome Center Complex Environmental Assessment


The environmental assessment presents a preferred alternative that proposes to construct a new welcome center to unify visitor services, a new adequately sized comfort station, and a plaza to house informational/orientation panels to replace the existing welcome center complex facilities. It also propose reconfiguring the existing parking lot to decrease vehicle-pedestrian conflicts and reduce congestion and an unpaved staff parking area along Tuolumne Grove Road to reduce congestion. It would install a sewer to connect the welcome center complex to the Hodgdon community septic system and decommission the aging septic system currently serving the facilities. In addition, the action alternative would provide the option for the addition of a water tank and access road at a later date.
