National Park Officials made the circuit through gateway communities to Yellowstone National Park last week to present proposed changes to the draft winter use plan and seek public input to the ideas. Spokesman Al Nash says the number of people attending varied from town to town – from 16 in one community to about 100 in another. Overall, the participants were pleased with the park’s response to their input. Nash says as the public has more time to look at the proposed changes, he anticipates even more valuable input to help arrive at a long-term, sustainable winter plan. Among the revisions proposed is a method to deal with the sound impacts of winter travel in such a way as to allow for more visitation as quieter technology evolves. Comments on the proposed revisions are being accepted from now through March 9th.
