Tonto Natural Bridge Should Not Be On The ‘Chopping Block’



I do not understand the Arizona State Parks Board decision to consider closing the Tonto Natural Bridge State Park.

More than 87,000 visitors helped stimulate Payson’s economy last year by visiting this unique, beautiful, geological, historic site.

Isn’t it possible to raise entrance fees to meet budget expenses, generate more income with better facilities and encourage more volunteer participation?

I would hope that the Arizona State Parks Board would reconsider solving this economic crisis, rather than putting our park on the “chopping block.”
