Boulder Ranger District meeting
Just got an email that says the next meeting has been moved to January 30th, no longer this week on January 23rd. So if you were planning on going on the 23rd, please go on the 30th instead. :thumb:

I'm hoping to attend and encourage others too as well.
FYI, there has been online conversation that the Boulder Ranger District may be permanently closing access to formerly open OHV routes which were damaged by the floods last fall.

Now is an especially important time to work towards keeping what little remaining OHV access remains within the BRD.

Please try to attend and lend support in numbers to show that interest in balanced mixed use remains high.

can you tell me where the meeting will be? Will it be at the offices on 36 near the gun range?

Yes, that's the place.

Lindsey and I are gonna head that way in a little bit. Maybe the weather report will keep away all but the 4x4 users.

Keith 01-30-2014 04:29 PM

Notes from 2/27/14 BRD FS meeting
Forest Service OHV meeting notes

Next meeting April 17th. We decided to skip a month due to the lack of active projects at the moment.

Jenny Creek: The FS is working on contracts for the reroute. The FS will do the actual tree cutting but a contractor will be moving the cut trees and creating the new portion of the road. Volunteer opportunities will include hauling hay bales and reseeding work to close the old route. They “hope” to be ready for volunteer work in August and September. They are still looking at possibly plowing some portion of the Rollins Pass road to facilitate getting the equipment in earlier in the season rather than waiting for the snow to melt.

Other Boulder Country FS roads:
Caribou, Kingston, Middle St Vrain – should open on regular schedule
Miller Rock – has some flood damage, needs further assessment
Park Creek (T33 crash site) – needs further assessment

Lefthand Canyon OHV area: still needs assessment. This website has further information : www.fs.usda.gov/goto/arp/flood2013 If you have specific questions or are interested in volunteer opportunities, contact the flood team at arpflood@fs.fed.us

The remainder of the meeting was a discussion of the Rollins Pass meeting that occurred earlier in the month. No new information came out tonight, it was a rehash of things from the earlier meeting. It was pointed out that very few letters and emails in support of opening the road have been received. Emails can be sent to: commissioners@bouldercounty.org

snail mail to
Boulder County Commissioners
PO Box 471
Boulder, CO 80306

All times are GMT -6. The time now is 05:39 PM.
