Progress on HSSP on indefinite hold
March 26, 2020
The deadline for Requests for Proposal (RFP) for two properties within Hot Springs State Park has been extended, however, with COVID-19 worries, any progress is put on an indefinite hold.
Nick Neylon with Wyoming State Parks said right now everything with Hot Springs State Park is in a holding pattern. Everything was dependent on the passage of the Capital Construction Bill, which failed, and now there are more pressing matters to deal with with the coronavirus.
Neylon said they are meeting as best they can via the internet, but until things get back to some semblance of normalcy, everything is in limbo.
Days Inn and Star Plunge are currently on a month-to-month basis with the State of Wyoming. Both businesses operate within Hot Springs State Park’s boundaries.
Last year, the Wyoming State Legislature passed Senate File 166, which requires for-profit business concessions in Wyoming State Parks to sign contracts or leases with a minimum term of five years.
