NPS seeks suggestions on park leasing application

The National Park Service (NPS) seeks suggestions to improve the application for leasing park property. On Thursday, Feb. 27, NPS put out a call for public comment on renewal of the NPS Leasing Program application. NPS proposes no suggestions but is taking public comments through March 31.

Authorization for the form technically expired on Feb. 28 but NPS will continue to use the form while it seeks required approval from the Office of Management & Budget for renewal.

Anyone who wants to lease park property, including making a bid, other than for concessions or commercial use authorization, must complete the form.

NPS takes bids only when the amount of rent is the only criterion to consider. Otherwise, it will make requests-for-proposals. Or it can enter no-bid contracts with non-profits or other government agencies.

NPS does about 34 such leases a year. The form is also used for subleases.

NPS asked for comments last October and got none and is giving the public a second chance.
