The concession authorization expires on its terms on December 31, 2002. The National Park Service has determined that the proposed 6-month extension is necessary in order to avoid interruption of visitor services and has taken all reasonable and appropriate steps to consider alternatives to avoid such interruption. This extension will allow the National Park Service to develop a prospectus leading to competitive selection for a new long-term concession contract.Start Signature
