INTERIOR, S.D. (AP) - Badlands National Park is beginning a series of public meetings on Monday to get feedback on a possible entrance fee increase.

A proposal that would go into effect in 2017 would raise the per-person walk-in rate to $12 from $7, double the motorcycle rate to $20, raise the vehicle rate to $25 from $15 and bump the annual pass to $50 from $30.

Superintendent Mike Pflaum says the park wants to balance affordability with visitor experience.

The meetings are:

- Monday, 6-8 p.m., Community Center in Wall

- Wednesday, 6-8 p.m., Fire Department Annex in Kadoka,

- Monday, Jan. 18, 6-8 p.m., Community Center in Interior

- Monday, Jan. 25, 6-8 p.m., Outdoor Campus in Rapid City

- Wednesday, Jan. 27, 1-4 p.m., Tribal Council Building in Pine Ridge
