The public will have a chance to weigh in on a plan to allow air tours over Bandelier National Monument near Los Alamos.
The National Park Service and the Federal Aviation Administration are asking for public comment on the draft of the proposed Air Tour Management Plan.
Under the plan, up to 101 air tours would be allowed each year across nine defined routes. That number is based on the average number that were reported over the monument between 2017 and 2019.
Comments can be submitted through the Park Service's planning, environment and public comment website through Oct. 3. The project's plans are also available to look at on the website.
There are concerns air tours could damage wildlife and other natural and cultural resources.
Bandelier National Monument is among two dozen parks in the National Park System considering air tour management plans.
