This action will implement requirements of the concession contract CC-YOSE004-16 with Yosemite Hospitality LLC which began March 1, 2016. Construction is planned for winter 2018/spring 2019.

The project undertaking includes the rehabilitation of the Half Dome Village Pavilion in Yosemite Valley. A principal selection factor in the current concessioner contract was to provide visitors improved food and beverage operations, product quality, consistency, and availability.
