BUFORD, N.D. (AP) - The National Park Service is soliciting public comment on what it calls a critical shortage of employee housing for the Fort Union Trading Post National Historic Site.

The Expanded Park Housing/Utilities Plan and Environmental Assessment aims to address the shortage, increase the housing capacity of the park to an adequate number of bedrooms and upgrade the existing wastewater treatment system. It also looks to provide utility connections to proposed housing units and provide effluent connect to a proposed drain field site.

Park superintendent Andy Banta says the plan analyzes two action alternatives that focus on the immediate need for housing park employees.

The comment period runs through Jan. 11.
