LETTERS - DEPARTMENT OF INTERIOR
Chairman Hazleton received the following letter from the Department of Interior:
U. S. Department of the Interior
National Park Service
Glen Canyon National Recreation Area
Page, Arizona - 86040 Mr. Marion H. Hazleton, Chairman San Juan County Commission Monticello, Utah 84535
Dear Mr. Hazleton:
We wish to acknowledge and thank you for the Commission's letter of January 17th, concerning proposed development at Halls Crossing in Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. You will be pleased to learn that our 1968 fiscal year budget, which is presently being considered by Congress, includes extensive road work at the Halls Crossing development site. Also included are several confort stations and some utility work, to complete our water system. We hope, too, to pave the main boat launching ramp, which may be in use this coming Summer.
We have worked closely with our Concessioner, Lake Powell Ferry Service, Inc., in developing a Master Plan for the area which we believe will please the people of San Juan County and the visiting public in general. Perhaps Mr. Calvin Black has shown you or told you of our joint plans.
Included in this Master Plan is the airstrip referred to in the Commission's letter. We firmly believe that airstrips are a very important part of these remote developments and that air travel will increase through the years. With this thought in mind and because of the volume of air traffic we already have at Halls Crossing, we intend to improve the existing airstrip this Spring. As you may know, this is presently by far the best strip in the Recreation Area.
We have been working closely with the Federal Aviation Agency to develop adequate and safe facilities for air travel in the area. We expect to continue this close cooperation. However, the Commission's official request that the Federal Aviation Agency designate Halls Crossing Site Number One as the airport to serve Lake Powell -under the National Airport Plan is misdirected in being sent to us. The National Park Service does not make such designations.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the past cooperation of San Juan County personnel. As you may know, your highway people have been grading our portion of the Halls Crossing Road on a re-imbursable basis. This is a great help to us. Also, we have noticed the several signs in your county directing motorists to Lake Powell. This is also a help.
We very much appreciate your interest in and support of Glen Canyon National Recreation Area. Your thoughts will be called to the attention of our supporters in the National Parks Service.
/s/ Gustav W. Muehlenhaupt Superintendent
LETTER - FEDERAL AVIATION AGENCY
Federal Aviation Agency Salt Lake City area Office 116 North 23rd West Salt Lake City, Utah 84116
Mr. Marion H. Hazleton San Juan County Commission Monticello, Utah
Dear Mr. Hazleton:
Your letter of January 10, 1967 requested that Halls Crossing Site No. 1, as described in our Site Investigation Report dated August 3, 1966, be designated as the Airstrip to serve Lake Powell in the National Airport Plan.
I appreciated the opportunity of discussing this matter personally with you and Commissioner Calvin Black at the conference held in my office on January 12, 1967. Your request will be given careful consideration when the National Airport Plan is revised.
If we can be of any further assistance on airport planning matters, please contact Mr. Herman M. Maxwell, Chief, Airports Branch of my office.
/s/ Vaughn M. Clayton Area Manager.
