Tom,
 
I agree. After reading all the documents that you provided in your email, there has been appropriate time provided for written public input.

Having looked at the material on the website, I don't think there is enough risk in plan to warrant a public hearing.

Maybe I'm naive, but I don't why someone would purposely want to put bike riders, as well as car passengers, in harms way.  However, I would think there should be a public hearing.

Any thoughts on what to do? I don't have an opinion.

Thanks, Nenad

Dear Buzz or whoever is in charge,
 
I'm hoping your organization is aware of a US Forest Serivce proposal to permit outdoor shooting at the old Allenspark dump site on Hwy 7 just below the junction with Colo. 72.  I know it's a favorite route for cyclists who then join the Peak to Peak Hwy.  The public comment period ends next week on June 23rd.  The forest service will not extend the time period.
 
There was never a public meeting, and one would only know of the 30 day comment period by going to the US For. Svc. website.  I know several of the landowners near by the land at issue.  And although I don't personally bike that high up, I'm sure the cycling community would want to weigh in on how dangerous this would be for them.
 
We have contacted the Bo. Co. Commissioners and Congressman Polis and Sen. Udahl's offices.  The only recourse now is for the Forest Service to hear from many people about the danger.  Only those who contact the Svc. before next week would have standing in an appeal in this ruling goes ahead.
 
Could you get the word out to your members, and or send something official to the Forest Service?  The address for the office is 2140 Yarmouth Ave., Boulder 80301.  Their phone is 303-541 -2500.  Not sure about the website, but I suspect that one could enter comments that way.    Thanks and hoping your organization can help.  Mary Blue 303-772-3890
