Construction Approved for Concession Employee Housing in YNP
Written by andrew-rossi on August 1, 2019
Yellowstone National Park concessionaires have been given the go ahead to begin developing seasonal housing for their employees.
Xanterra and Delaware North have been approved to develop housing for their employees at Canyon Village and the West Entrance. Housing improvements could begin as early as this fall.
The project will include the construction of up to 14 RV sites and six modular homes, and rehabilitation of comfort stations to provide shower and laundry facilities at an abandoned camper loop in the Canyon Campground.
Additionally, this project will include construction of up to 25 RV sites and a bath house adjacent to the Yellowstone General Stores warehouse near the West Entrance.
The decision was made after the National Park Service acting Intermountain Regional Director signed the Finding of No Significant Impact for the environmental assessment to allow the work to begin.
