What will the re-designation to a national park cost local taxpayers?

Of course, Americans as a whole have shouldered much of the cost park fees don’t cover to operate and maintain our national monument, since 1916. Astonishingly, the cost to re-designate the national monument to a national park and gain a coveted and instantly recognizable brand is negligible (estimated at less than 10-thousand dollars), mainly involving some signage changes which will be covered for the most part by the Colorado Department of Transportation and in part by the National Park Service.  In other words re-designation would come to local taxpayers virtually free.
