Yellowstone National Park has just completed a Commercial Use Authorization Plan to help guide commercial services in the park. Several changes to the draft plan released for review in February were made as a result of public input that had been provided both online and at meetings held in five communities around the region.  Spokesman Al Nash explains that the plan includes a new open application process, new service categories, new operating plans, a new fee schedule, and a new monitoring program. Nash explains that any kind of business that somebody wants to run inside a park must be operated under a permit.  This new plan, he says now allows current permit holders to apply for a renewal, and he adds for the first time in several years, it allows those nearly interested in doing business in Yellowstone to apply for a permit. Nash says applications are now being accepted for those interested in providing road tours, photography, day hiking, skiing, biking, towing, motorized boating, and non-motorized boating.
