Post FOREST SERVICE PLAN NEEDS CRUCIAL INPUT
The Pike and San Isabel National Forests in Colorado are developing a management plan to shape the kinds of uses allowed on these Forests for the next 15 years.  Seven public meetings are scheduled in January and February to give the public an opportunity to state how they want the Forests to be managed.  The last time the management plan was updated was in 1984, so it is likely that the new plan will incorporate some significant changes.  It is vital that sportsmen and women participate in the process to ensure access and opportunities for hunting and recreational shooting.
In its announcement, the Forest Service said that the principal issues will be recreation, ranching, oil and gas development, logging, forest thinning, and off-road vehicle use.  The meetings will be from 5:30 to 9:00 p.m., in the following locations:
January 17 - Leadville, National Mining Hall of Fame and Museum, 120 West 9th Street
January 18 - Salida, Chaffee County Fairgrounds, 10165 County Road 120
January 30 - Denver, Clements Community Center, 1580 Yarrow Street
January 31 - Colorado Springs, La Foret Conference Center, 6145 Shoup Road
February 14 -Westcliffe, Ranchera's Roost Cafe & Bowling Alley, 25 Main Street
February 15 - Pueblo, El Pueblo Museum, 302 N. Santa Fe Avenue
February 21 - Fairplay, Fairplay Fairbarn, 880 Bogue Street

Yes I will try and make this meeting. I was not able to make the last one because of the snow. I am supposing that this meeting is a reschedule because of the snow that we had.
(And I hope that the building will be heated!)

I never thought I'd say this, but ENOUGH SNOW!! :o At least for a while. I know... we need the moisture.

A lot of things were postponed from the storms. I'm glad to see the USFS rescheduled. I know it's a particular interest of yours. A lot has been learned since 1984.
