YNP Issues Comp Plan for Lake Area

Lake Hotel;Jim Peaco;June 1989

A comprehensive plan proposed for the Lake area of Yellowstone National Park has been released this week along with an environmental assessment, opening a 30-day public review and comment period on the plan.  According to park officials, the plan addresses and establishes limits for the amount of future development can occur ad Lake Village, Fishing Bridge and Bridge Bay, as well as where and what kind of development that can be.   Park planners point out that this section of the park is known for its spawning streams and grizzly bear habitat as well as historic structures.  Among the concerns in the area are the 70-year-old water and sewer lines which are suffering the effects of age.  In addition to online review of the plan and comment opportunities, Park officials plan public meetings in gateway communities including Cody on February 8th, Bozeman, Montana on February 15th and Jackson on February 16th.
