Thanks to those who contributed to the Snake River Master Plan

Dan VaughnSnake River Planning Commission chairman

As noted in your article of March 15, the update of the Snake River Master Plan was adopted by the Snake River Planning Commission on March 10.The process took 15 months from start to finish and involved a lot of time, effort and valuable input from a number of residents from the Snake River Basin.I would like to express my personal thank you to Mark Truckey, John Roberts and Jim Curnutte of the Summit County Planning Department, whose tireless efforts kept the planning commission focused and the March adoption date a realistic target.I would also like to express my heartfelt thank you and gratitude to the members of the Snake River Planning Commission: Terry Craig, John Crone, Suzanne Hebert (now Dillon Town Councilwoman Hebert), Jeanne Oltman, Susan Ray, Bill Sander, Craig Suwinski and former planning commission member from the Town of Montezuma, Ed Hood. These people went above and beyond the call of duty (and volunteerism) by spending two nights a month at public hearings and untold hours reviewing staff reports and public input in preparation for those meetings.I would also like to thank the residents of the Snake River Basin who participated in numerous hearings and the public open houses used to solicit input from the community.My thanks and gratitude go out to: Russ Camp, Joe Castlebury, Linda Clem, Bob Craig, Barb Crandall, Thomas Davidson, Bob Follet, Alex Iskedarian, Gary and Kikken Miller, Dean Myerson, John Neilly, Terry Novak, Alf and Sunni Tieze, Joe Whitehouse, John Wood and the staff at the Keystone Center who participated and provided valuable input each and every month of this process.I would also like to extend my thanks (and apologies) for those who participated in the process and I cannot remember your names.The Snake River Basin will be a better place to live as a result of all those who participated in the update of the Snake River Basin Master Plan.
