The official public comment period has ended, and the USFS and BLM have issued their final decision. We are exploring all litigation options to see how we can continue to fight this proposed development. In the meantime, we encourage you to write to Senators Bennet and Gardner, Representative Tipton, County Commissioner Mark Roeber stating your outrage over this decision, and asking them to intervene to protect the North Fork Valley.
