Default Rising Sun representative needed at this weeks BRD meeting!

Title says it all! None of us that usually go to the BRD meeting are able to this week! Someone (can be more than one) needs to step up and represent. I promise it will be interesting and possibly habit forming! If you can go please check in with Marco to get any updates he needs to share. Here is the agenda....
Date: Mon, Jul 10, 2017 at 8:12 AM
Subject: BRDOHV: OHV Meeting Agenda for 7/13
To: "boulderRD_OHV@googlegroups.com" <boulderRD_OHV@googlegroups.com>
Cc: Megan Devich <megan.devich@icloud.com>, offroading subarus of colorado <subarulegacyforest@gmail.com>

As planned we will have our normal monthly OHV meeting at 5:00pm at the Boulder Ranger District Office (2140 Yarmouth Ave, Boulder, CO 80301). See you there!

Next meeting August 10th?

Updates are highlighted in Green.


Magnolia Non-Motorized Trails we kicked off the public implementation meeting last Friday. Of the 140 that RSVPd, 50 came. We had exercises for everyone to determine the priorities and needs when determining how to move forward with the project. We are sorting through the data and plan to have the results of the meeting out soon.

No new updates regarding Lefthand.

Lefthand Motorized Roads and Trails Project (what we all call Lefthand OHV has been entered into the SOPA (I have an inquiry out as to why its not showing up Ill let you know when I know whats going on): http://www.fs.fed.us/sopa/state-level.php?co. Our plan is to have a proposed action out to the public by summer.


No new updates but I know Jon is working on it.

Chainsaw Training No tangible updates, though I am working with our Fire program to get a class for employees and a few volunteers. I will prioritize my employees first, but we are looking at how to include a volunteer program. Right now its still pretty complicated, so allow me some time to work through this. It may not be viable for us to do in 2017.

Adopt-A-Trail Project Specifics most quantities are estimates and need additional verification.

Both portions of the 505 roads will remain closed until further notice!

Jenny Creek/Rollins Pass: (Rising Sun Aug. 12/13)

Concrete barriers moved back into place

Buck-n-rail where needed, common bypasses.

Kevin Erlich snow drift was still sizeable as of June 16th.

they picked the one night probably this whole year that there is a mandatory work function I have to go to tonight.

is there a schedule posted anywhere where the various district meeting dates and times are posted ahead of time? Might be easier for people to put time into their schedules.
