“Commissioner Farris plans to follow up on discussions from a public meeting in Carbondale in September of last year at which some attendees raised questions about the operations of the Colorado Division of Wildlife shooting range at Basalt State Wildlife Area,” said a statement from the state agency. “Commissioner Farris has worked with division staff to research the history and usage of the range and she looks forward to continuing discussion of that item.”

The Colorado Wildlife Commission is an 11-member board appointed by the governor. The commission sets Colorado Division of Wildlife regulations and policies for hunting, fishing, watchable wildlife, and non-game, threatened and endangered species. Commissioners also oversee Division of Wildlife land purchases and property regulations.
