Yosemite National Park has made its communications plan available for public review.
The environmental assessment of Yosemite's communication data network is the subject of a public meeting planned for Jan. 13 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. in the Mariposa County Government Chambers. The proposed project would upgrade the park's internal communication systems. It covers the existing communications system and calls for a new platform for computer networks, radio, security and safety video, telephones, alarms, traffic data and telemetry. The park would add new sites to the network, including the Wawona maintenance yard, Hodgdon maintenance yard, the Hetchy Hetchy entrance station, May Lake junction and Big Oak Flat Road.
The project information may be reviewed at Yosemite's Web site at http://www.nps.gov/yose/parkmgmt/cdn.htm. Comments may be submitted at public meetings or by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org (subject:CDN EA) or by fax to (209) 379-1294, or by mail, to: Yosemite National Park Superintendent, Attn: CDN EA, P.O. Box 577, Yosemite, CA 95389.
