While it considers possibly demolishing or revamping the old lodge at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the National Park Service is seeking comments from the public about the project.
Comments may be submitted via mail to Lake Mead’s compliance office, 601 Nevada Way, Boulder City, NV, 89005,
or online at http://parkplanning.nps.gov/lake/ by Nov. 30.
The lodge, which closed in December 2008, is eligible to be listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Park Service is required to evaluate the impact of demolishing the facility or adapting it for a non-commercial use, spokesman Andrew Munoz said in a statement.
Originally named Hualapai Lodge, the initial structure was built in 1941 and was located next to Lake Mead Marina before the marina moved in 2008.
Seven Crown Resorts, Inc., began operating the lodge in 1979. When it closed in 2008, the company cited the move of the marina, heavy lodging competition elsewhere in the area and the declining water levels in Lake Mead.
