American Fork, Utah (AP) - Federal officials are proposing a new visitor center for Timpanogos Cave National Monument and an interagency government building at the mouth of American Fork Canyon.

The monument's visitor center would replace a double-wide mobile home in use as the park's headquarters ever since a 1991 fire destroyed the main building. The double-wide is also in a hazardous area where rocks sometimes break off from a nearby cliff and hit the building.

The interagency building at the canyon's mouth would include offices for the U.S. Forest Service, visitor services and administrative space.

Denis Davis, superintendent of the 250-acre monument, says a draft of an environmental assessment of the two projects could be completed sometime this fall.
