SUMMARY:

Pursuant to 36 CFR 51.23, public notice is hereby given that, in order to avoid interruption of visitor services, the National Park Service has extended the following concession contracts for a period of 3 years (i.e., until December 31, 2005) or until such time as new authorizations are executed, whichever occurs sooner.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION

All of the listed concession contracts expired by their terms on December 31, 2002. The National Park service has determined that the proposed extensions are necessary in order to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid such interruption. These extensions will allow the National Park Service to complete development of a Colorado River Management Plan, and issue a prospectus based on that plan leading to the competitive selection of concessioners for new long-term concession contracts covering these operations.
