Yellowstone National Park Concessionaire Housing EA
The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to authorize park concessionaires (Xanterra and Delaware North) to develop seasonal housing for their employees at two locations within Yellowstone National Park: Canyon Village and West Entrance.
An Environmental Assessment (EA) has been prepared in compliance with the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), Section 106 of the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA), and other applicable laws and regulations.
The EA for the proposed project evaluates two alternatives. Alternative A would not construct additional seasonal housing. Alternative B would authorize the redevelopment of an abandoned camper loop at the Canyon Campground to include construction of a combination of up to 14 RV sites and 6 modular homes, and existing comfort stations rehabilitated to provide shower and laundry facilities for employees. Additionally, up to 25 recreational vehicle (RV) sites and a bath house would be constructed adjacent to the Yellowstone General Stores warehouse near the West Entrance.
