PUBLIC MEETING WEDS 2/2/11: MT RAINIER CLIMBING FEE INCREASE

THIS IS YOUR FINAL CHANCE TO BE HEARD AND GIVE INPUT TO MOUNTAIN RAINIER NATIONAL PARK ABOUT CLIMBING FEE INCREASES!

The Park has already held 3 similar public meetings, but only Ĺ dozen or so people attended each of these meetings!

The public comment period was to officially end on 1/31/11, but park officials have graciously agreed to allow one last meeting with the hope that more people will attend and provide input before any decisions about climbing fee increases are made.

There is concern that many of you have not even heard about this proposal to increase climbing fees, and many members of the climbing community over the past few months have expressed very passionate views regarding these fees and services. The attendance at these 3 previous public meetings does not seem to reflect the real public interest that exists.

Marmot Mountain Works will be hosting this final public meeting regarding the proposed Mount Rainier Climbing Permit Fee Increases next week at their store in Bellevue on Wednesday February 2nd 2011 at 6:30pm. Park officials, including Park Superintendent David Uberuaga, will be in attendance to answer your questions and to take public comments. Please call Marmot Mountain Works @ 425-453-1515 to RSVP and to reserve your spot at the public meeting.

Mount Rainier National Park is proposing to increase the cost of a climbing pass from $30 to an amount between $43 and $58. They are also proposing to institute potential annual incremental increases tied to the rate of inflation or some other methodology that tracks actual climbing program costs.

Park officials will do a brief presentation outlining current associated climbing program costs as well as describe proposals for the future that involve additional potential increases. Public comments and questions will then be taken following this presentation.

More detailed information regarding the current and future proposed program specifics and costs can be found by going to Mount Rainierís web site www.nps.gov/mora/parkmgmt/climbingfee.htm.

WHETHER YOU ARE FOR OR AGAINST THESE FEE INCREASES, PLEASE COME AND ATTEND THIS MEETING AND PROVIDE SOME CONSTRUCTIVE COMMENTS AND INPUT FOR THE OFFICIALS AT MOUNT RAINIER NATIONAL PARK IN CHARGE OF MAKING THESE DECISIONS AND SHOW THE PARK THAT WE ALL DO INDEED CARE ABOUT THESE IMPORTANT ISSUES!

I apologize for the double posting, but I wanted to make sure that as many folks as possible are aware of this proposal and public meeting.
