Stakeholder workshops to gather input from Public Land users 

NUCLA, Colorado - (23 August 2019) 

The public is invited to participate in a series of workshops regarding recreation on our BLM public lands. 

Montrose West Recreation (MWR), partnering with the Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW), the West End Economic Development Corporation (WEEDC), the Trust for Public Lands and the Telluride Foundation, announce the first set of public lands stakeholder workshops. MWR was awarded a Trails Planning Grant from CPW earlier this year to create a community-based proposal for four areas outside the towns of Naturita and Nucla, which are listed below. The meetings will gather information from user groups in order to identify current uses and opportunities for future outdoor recreation development on West End BLM public lands. 

  • Motorized Recreation and Ranch Leaseholder Discussion - September 10th 6:30-8:30 
  • Non-Motorized Recreation and Equestrian Discussion – September 11th 6:30-8:30 
  • Meeting Location: The Nucla First Park Community Center. 
  • Facilitator: Public Lands Solutions 

Areas to be discussed include: 

  • Naturita Flats south of Naturita 
  • The Sawtooth Area west of Naturita 
  • Areas north and east of Nucla surrounding the Paradox Trail 

The workshops will provide opportunities to identify current usage within the area. Existing trails plus conceptual trails and other potential recreational improvements will also be discussed. Opportunities to provide additional input will exist after the initial meetings for those unable to attend.
