The National Park Service (NPS) proposes to construct the first permanent visitor, administrative, and maintenance facilities at Fossil Butte National Monument since its Congressional establishment in 1972. Proposed facilities include: a 4,800-square-foot visitor center and administrative building on a 2-acre site approximately 1 mile north of Lincoln County Road 300; and a 2,000-square-foot maintenance building, materials storage yard, and seasonal-employee housing unit on a 5-acre site near the southwest corner of the monument. The employee housing unit is not part of this package and would be constructed at a later date if additional funding becomes available. Other proposed development includes construction/reconstruction of access roads, parking areas, wayside pullouts, directional signing, and utilities including water, sewer, power, and telephone lines.
