BLM accepting comments on Upper Colorado River management

KREMMLING, Colo. – The Bureau of Land Management seeks public input as it begins updating a management plan for about 40 miles of the Upper Colorado River between Parshall and State Bridge.

The Recreation Area Management Plan update will guide the specific management of the Upper Colorado River Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) within the Kremmling Field Office, an extremely popular area for commercial and private float-boating and fishing. More than 90,000 people visit the area each year.

“The original management plan for the area dates back to 2000, and a lot has changed since then,” said BLM Kremmling Field Manager Stephanie Odell. “We want to hear what the public would like us to address – things like ways to reduce crowding and user conflicts, potentially improving facilities, balancing use with conserving the natural resources of the area, or any other issues.”

The BLM is hosting three public open house meetings to answer questions and accept written comments:

• April 18 from 4-6 p.m. in Silverthorne at the Summit County Library, 651 Center Circle
• April 20 from 4-6 p.m. in Kremmling at the CSU Extension Hall, 210 11th St.
• April 21 from 6-8 p.m. in Denver at the REI Flagship Store, 1416 Platte St.

The BLM Kremmling Field Office collected more than $220,000 in commercial and recreation fees from the Upper Colorado River SRMA last year. These funds are used to manage the SRMA. Recreation on BLM lands in the Kremmling Field Office supports an estimated 280 jobs generating $8.4 million in labor income annually.

More information about the management plan update is available at:
