Public Comments Sought On Proposal To Provide Cellular Telephone Service At Bullfrog

PAGE, Ariz. — The National Park Service is soliciting public comments on a proposal to add cellular telephone service to the Bullfrog Marina, located within Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. 

Commnet Wireless, a wireless telecommunications provider, has requested approval from the National Park Service to construct six 51-inch antennas on the exterior of the Defiance House Lodge.

Neither the antennas nor the associated equipment will have any adverse effects on the area’s scenery or visual resources, as they will not require construction of a cell tower.  The antennas would be located on the façade of the building and would not visibly protrude above the Defiance House Lodge’s roof line. 

The antennas would be painted to match the lodge’s color scheme.  In addition, a small fenced structure, matching existing fencing, would be constructed next to the lodge to house associated radio equipment.

Currently, there is no cellular telephone service in the Bullfrog area, which receives more than 200,000 visitors each year.

Additional information about the project is available at  Comments may be submitted on that Web site or mailed to Glen Canyon National Recreation Area, P.O. Box 1507, Page, AZ
86040.  All comments must be received by Sept.18.
