I think its fine for other folks to call and ask for recreational access to be considered. The more calls they get the more they know that there is demand for it.
My suggestion is that folks should be courteous and not argumentative, and that they should be constructive in suggestions.
I offered to work with the CDOT project managers to develop a recreational access plan and communicate it to the kayaking community.
I also contacted one of the Golden city council member to see if they can put in a good word for us. If you know someone who has some political connections... time to call them up!
Just saw Nathan's comment. It might be appropraite to minimize multiple contacts. One thing the CDOT guy told me is that he has gotten lots of calls and that everyone wants to put in at a different spot, which woudl be problematic for them. I assured him that upper clear creek boaters can access from the top, and that only blackrock and lower paddlers would be impacted by the upcoming closure. I noted that we could easily have only a couple of access spots in the canyon to do the runs we want, so I think some consistency will help our cause.
