Currently, there is limited cellular service in the Wahweap Resort area, which receives over 1,000,000 visitors per year. The cellular antennas are to be installed on the roof of the Rainbow Room Restaurant. The Rainbow Room Restaurant is a non-historic structure in the Lake Powell Resort developed area. The proposed site includes six 51 inch by 13 inch by 3 inch rectangular panel antennas mounted on the roof of the Rainbow Room Restaurant and nearby ground mounted associated radio equipment shielded by a cedar privacy fence matching existing fencing. The antennas will protrude approximately 50 inches above the existing roof line. The antenna panels will be painted to match the Lake Powell Resort color scheme. Neither the antennas nor the associated equipment will have any adverse effects on the area's scenery or visual resources.

The staff at Glen Canyon National Recreation Area has completed a review and analysis pursuant to the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), the National Historic Preservation Act, the Telecommunications Act of 1996, and National Park Service requirements, policy and regulations. The NPS has categorically excluded this proposal from further analysis under NEPA, and has determined that there will not be any adverse effects or impairment to the park's natural and cultural resources. Copies of the NPS analysis and NEPA documents are available at Glen Canyon NRA, 691 Scenic View Drive, Page, AZ 86040, or can be requested by writing to Glen Canyon NRA, Attention Stan Burman, PO Box 1507, Page, AZ 86040, or by going to​glca.
