Susie and Jay Weinstein: Thanks to Gibbs, Scanlan
Dillon, CO Colorado
We would very much like to say thanks to Rep. Scanlan and Sen/ Gibbs for their combined letter to the Colorado State Parks Board and the Colorado State Trails Committee officially requesting the Colorado State Trails Committee not to approve the proposed grant of $479,200 from the OHV Fund for the Tenderfoot Trails System expansion.
Their combined letter clearly articulates the reasons why the expansion is not feasible and does not make sense for the environment and the affected citizens. Both legislators recognize that this project is controversial, but more important, Scanlan and Gibbs demonstrate that they listen to their constituents, in comparison to the U.S. Forest Service who continue to push for the expansion program with SCORR, swim upstream and against the crescendo of the Town of Dillon, the Summit Board of County Commissioners, the Snake River Planning Commission and the many affected home owners’ associations along the proposed expansion project.
Start a dialogue, stay on topic and be civil.
