Public invited to second meeting to discuss scenic corridor Highway 67
The North Kaibab Ranger District of the Kaibab National Forest is developing a new corridor management plan for the Kaibab Plateau – North Rim Parkway, otherwise known as Arizona Highway 67.
The public is invited to the second in a series of meetings to learn more about this effort and to voice any concerns or feedback about the project. The first meeting was held on November 5. The second meeting will take place from 6 to 8 p.m. on Monday, December 10, at the North Kaibab Ranger District office, 430 S. Main Street, in Fredonia.
Participants can also join the meeting online. Go to https://www3.gotomeeting.com/register/586565742 to register.
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.
The purpose of this project is to develop a corridor management plan that serves as a guiding document with an implementation strategy for cultural, historic, recreational, natural, and scenic qualities that promote the area. Previous plans are outdated.
The new corridor management plan will have specific goals for improving and implementing new procedures and projects to enhance visitors’ perceptions of the byway’s intrinsic qualities. Promoting these qualities of the byway will benefit local businesses, communities, and partners in bringing more travelers and visitors to the byway by providing authentic experiences along Arizona Highway 67.
