Yellowstone National Park is looking at returning a group of 67 lodge cabins in the Old Faithful area back to the inventory used to house park visitors.  As such, Park Spokesman Al Nash says the preferred alternative in an environmental assessment called the “Old Faithful Cabin Repurposing and Dormitory Construction Plan” was released yesterday for public comment. Nash points out that to replace those cabins as employee housing, a dormitory would be built in the administrative area away from where the public visits.  Nash says the plan also represents a commitment to properly preserve the historic cabins, and so an effort to restore them is included in the plan.  The Park plans to look at the cabins to determine what work needs to be done to make them suitable visitor accommodations.  However, he adds that the cabins have been there a long time and historically used for visitors. Nash says details of the plan as well as an electronic form to submit comments can be found online or may be obtained by calling the or mailing the park.  Comments must be received before midnight, February 26th.
