May 22, 2019 - 3:47 pm

BOULDER CITY, NV (KXNT) - The National Park Service is seeking public comment on a draft plan that provides recommendations to improve the accessibility of visitor services at Lake Mead National Recreation Area.

An interdisciplinary team, including park and regional staff, identified key park experiences and park areas to determine which areas would be evaluated for accessibility needs. The team then developed implementation strategies for improving accessibility at each location.

The plan will guide changes to the way existing services, activities and programs are provided in multiple locations throughout Lake Mead National Recreation Area by defining what barriers limit accessibility and by providing recommendations on how they can be modified or removed to increase accessibility for all visitors.

The public is encouraged to comment on the draft plan. Feedback will be accepted through June 22, 2019, both online at and via U.S. mail at Lake Mead National Recreation Area Superintendent, Attention: Accessibility Plan, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, Nevada 89005.
