Report – 13 Future Plans

Report of the Superintendent of the Crater Lake National Park, 1910

 Future Plans.

At the last session of Congress an appropriation of $10,000 was made to be expended under the direction of the Secretary of War, by the Chief of Engineers, United States Army, for a preliminary survey of roads and trails in the park. On September 3 and 4, when the writer was in the park, a corps of civilian engineers were engaged in locating the road around the rim of Crater Lake. This road should be a first-class macadam or oiled macadam road, and should keep the lake in view even at considerable additional expense for construction. These surveys are being made under the personal supervision of Maj. J. J. Morrow, Corps of Engineers, U. S. Army.

While these road surveys are in progress it would be economy to have a general plan for a sewer system, water-supply system, and road-sprinkling system worked up at the same time, and make the future villages and camps conform themselves to these general plans. There is no better time to do these things than at present.
