Washington, DC: Trump advisers want to ‘modernize’ national parks with wifi, food trucks and Amazon deliveries

The committee's motives have been questioned due to the fact that it includes appointees who work for companies with NPS contracts, creating potential conflicts of interest.

A committee of advisers delivered a set of recommendations to the Trump administration last month that they claim will revitalize America’s national parks and make a dent in the $11.9 billion maintenance backlog faced by the National Park Service.

The committee has recommended a broad range of changes, including updating the campground reservation process to allow partnerships with third-party websites to improve the reservation experience, pursuing initiatives that would provide vocational training for youth and veterans and even enabling wi-fi access and Amazon deliveries at specific campsites.
