Feds release roadless plan

Aspen Times Staff Report
Aspen, CO Colorado

GLENWOOD SPRINGS ” The federal government’s proposed plan to manage roadless areas of national forests in Colorado was released Friday, and the public now has 90 days to submit comments.

Glenwood Springs will host one of eight open houses designed to help the public understand the proposal. That meeting will be Wednesday, Aug. 27, at the Hotel Colorado at a time to be determined.

The draft plan can be found online at http://roadless.fs.fed.us/colorado.shtml.

“We are asking for public comments on how the rule has balanced national and local interests in the conservation and management of national forest roadless areas in the state of Colorado,” said Rocky Mountain Regional Forester Rick Cables.
