LEGAL NOTICE The proposed project would reconfigure and pave Flathead Lake State Park-Yellow Bay’s (FHLSP-YB) entrance and internal road system and would create 5 to 7 additional parking spaces designed to accommodate vehicle-boat trailer combinations. A cul-de-sac would be incorporated near the entrance to FHLSP-YB to provide a space for park visitors to turn around and to control traffic flow during peak use periods. The cul-de-sac would also function as a location for a small visitor contact station providing information about FHLSP-YB and for fee collection. To accommodate the proposed project, one of the two existing park host sites and five existing tent campsites would be relocated. An existing non-functional shower-house would be removed, and the existing wooden vault latrine would be replaced with a new concrete vault latrine. Further, six passenger vehicle parking spaces would be added at this location. Finally, FWP proposes to refurbish the existing flush toilet restroom and a small maintenance shed would be added in proximity to the refurbished restroom. A copy of the draft environmental assessment is available at the FWP office, 490 N. Meridian Rd., Kalispell; Montana State Library, 1515 E 6th Ave., Helena; FWP State Headquarters, 1420 E 6th Ave., Helena; and the FWP website at http://fwp.mt.gov/news/publicNotices/.
