TUCSON - The North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest is developing a new corridor management plan for the Kaibab Plateau-North Rim Parkway, or Arizona Highway 67.
All are invited to the second meeting to learn more about the plan and to voice any concerns or to give feedback about the effort.
The project is meant to develop a corridor management plan that will succeed the previous plans that are now outdated and serve as a guiding document with an achievement strategy for cultural, historic, recreational, natural, and scenic qualities that promote the area, Forest Service officials stated in a news release.
The meeting will be on Monday, December 10 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the North Kaibab Ranger District office, 430 S. Main Street, in Fredonia. The public can also register to watch and participate with the meeting through an online webinar.
The new management plan will have specific goals for improving and executing new procedures and projects to improve visitors' views of the road's authentic qualities, Forest Service officials stated.
The Kaibab Plateau-North Rim Parkway is a National Scenic Byway that extends 45 miles south from Jacob Lake to the entry station at the North Rim of Grand Canyon National Park.
