Commercial Concession Law and Legal Definition

Commercial concession refers to a special business arrangement made at a civil works project by leasing Army controlled real property to a private party for providing recreational services and facilities to the public at fair market value while seeking to make a profit.

The following is an example of a case law on commercial concession:

Concessions Act governs the granting of commercial concessions within the National Park System. In order to make visits to national parks more enjoyable for the public, Congress authorized the Park Service to grant privileges, leases, and permits for the use of land for the accommodation of visitors. Such privileges, leases, and permits have become embodied in national parks concession contracts. [River Runners for Wilderness v. Martin, 593 F.3d 1064, 1076 (9th Cir. 2010)].
