Implement a Fee Program and Daily Mountain Shuttle Service at Kennesaw Mountain NBP
This project is proposing to implement a parking fee at all parking lots in Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park and simultaneously close the mountain road to private vehicles and offer a 7 day per week shuttle service.
Parking rates would be $5 daily, $40 annually. Interagency passes, such as the America the Beautiful pass, Senior Pass, and Access Pass will also be accepted. Visitors would pay the daily fee at unstaffed fee pay stations or buy passes at the Visitor Center or online through the park website.
Revenue generated from parking fees will support a 7 day per week shuttle service to the top of Kennesaw Mountain, ending access by private vehicles. Additionally, the generated funds will go directly to deferred maintenance in the park, such as earthwork stabilization, trail stabilization and repair, and cannon restoration at outdoor cannon displays. Funds could also provide additional youth programs, historical exhibits, internship opportunities, and living histories.
