Final Commercial Services Plan and Environmental Impact Statement
Mary Riddle, Planning and Compliance
The purpose of the 2004 Final Commercial Services Plan (CSP) and Final Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) is to create a vision for commercial services in Glacier National Park based on the 1999 Final General Management Plan and Environmental Impact Statement. It evaluates the level and types of commercial visitor services that are necessary and appropriate for the foreseeable future. It also evaluates new services and determines how to retain well-known traditional services within an aging infrastructure that requires major capital expenditures to preserve and maintain. The Record of Decision (ROD) is a statement of the decisions made as a result of the analysis undertaken in the EIS, as well as comments and concerns from the public, tribes, and other agencies.
