Glen Canyon Concession Contract Public Input
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area is seeking input from the public in an effort to consider alternatives to the current concession contract structure. Some alternatives that could be considered include using Commercial Use Authorizations or leases in place of a concession contract to provide certain services.
With two of the larger contracts held within Glen Canyon needing to be renewed, this presents an opportunity to restructure contracts in such a way as to address increased visitation, changing visitor use, and to increase efficiency in managing contracts. Glen Canyon is reaching out to the public to solicit ideas for consideration in the commercial services and contract development process.
This public comment opportunity is not part of a formal environmental planning and compliance process and is not legally mandated. However, the Park feels that the public can provide valuable insight, perspective, and ideas to assist in developing manageable contracts that provide needed visitor services that will meet Park management objectives. Substantive comments and input will not be responded to by the Park, but will be considered in the development of potential contract options and will help inform the contract development process.
