BLM Seeks Input for Recreation Focus Groups

The Royal Gorge Field Office of the Bureau of Land Management is inviting area residents to share their views about recreation management.   The BLM wants to hear the public’s views on the places from Leadville to Westcliffe and from Salida to Canon City that matter most for recreational value so the BLM can better respond to the public’s desires and expectations for how these areas are managed.

Focus group sessions targeting area residents and businesses as well as visitors will be conducted in the area in the coming weeks.  They will be facilitated by Dr. Tim Casey, Professor of Political Science at the Natural Resource Center at Colorado Mesa University and will last approximately one and a half hours.

Two focus group sessions are scheduled for this Friday, October 31st.   The first will be in Cripple Creek at the Heritage Center from 10:00 - - 11:30 a.m.   The second will be Friday afternoon from 2:00 - - 3:30 p.m. at the Cañon City BLM Field Office at 3028 East Main Street.

A session for Custer County residents is scheduled for this Saturday, November 1st, from 10:00 - - 11:30 a.m. at the Cliff Lanes Family Entertainment Center Banquet Room.    Space is limited to 30 people in each session.
