Thank you for using MountainBuzz to get the word out and also for your prompt responses and clarifications. We are also aware that, as with many engineering and construction projects, development of a project schedule 6 months in advance of specific activities that affect us will be challenging and that dates & events will likely be fluid depending on construction progress.
Please be aware that many of the stakeholders in this process live in the Front Range or other parts of Colorado far from Glenwood Springs. I probably speak for many recreational boaters in a request for more thorough publicity of these issues than being asked to attend a meeting in Glenwood Springs with less than two weeks' notice.
We look forward to hearing details on the plans, and updates as they become available. We also hope that, rather than wholesale river closures, the responsible agencies will use public outreach, education, signage, and selective closures to allow optimal use of this resource that adds so much to our quality of life here in the Centennial State. Further, considering the high visibility of violating a "Grizzley Creek to Glenwood Springs" closure, enforcement should be a viable option for maintaining a closure on this reach.
In order that we may be better informed, please provide a link to any Environmental Assessment, or other similar project documents, describing impacts and corresponding mitigation measures of the planned construction.
Thank you once again for keeping us appraised of conditions,
