Colorado: Open Houses Scheduled for Forest Service Recreational Sport Shooting Management Project

The Northern Front Range Recreational Sport Shooting Management Partnership (Partnership) is hosting open houses in four counties (Boulder, Clear Creek, Gilpin, and Larimer) to present alternative maps for the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests Recreational Sport Shooting Management Project (RSSMP).

The RSSMP will determine how recreational shooting will be managed in the future in these national forests which cover more than 1.5 million acres.

New maps have been created that depict options for future management based on past input from the public and other entities.  A high level of attendance at the open houses and submission of oral or written comments on the maps are critically important actions to be taken if we are to maintain a level of accessible recreational shooting that accommodates the needs of the surrounding communities. 

The open houses will be held at the following locations and times:

  • Clear Creek County
    Nov. 2, 6-7:30 p.m.
    Idaho Springs City Hall, 1711 Miner Street, Idaho Springs
  • Gilpin County
    Nov 6, 6:30-8 p.m.
    Community Center, 250 Norton Drive, Black Hawk
  • Boulder County
    Nov. 13, 6:30-8 p.m.
    Boulder County Courthouse, Commissioners’, 
    Hearing Room 3rd Floor, 1325 Pearl Street, Boulder
  • Larimer County
    Nov. 16, 6-7:30 p.m.
    Larimer County Courthouse Offices, 
    1st Floor Hearing Room, 200 West Oak, Fort Collins 

Members of the Partnership, including the Forest Service, will be in attendance at each open house to answer questions related to the four alternative maps. There will be no formal presentation - just a brief project introduction. These open houses are an informal opportunity to look closely at the maps and provide input. Information gathered during this process will be incorporated into finalizing the environmental assessment and draft decision, expected in 2018.

Project introductions at each open house will be live streamed on Facebook at
www.Facebook.com/SportShootingPartners and links to high quality PDFs of the maps will be available for viewing later this week at www.SportShootingPartners.org.

For any members of the public who cannot attend an open house but would like to comment on the alternative maps online, there is a short comment form available at
www.SportShootingPartners.org/commentform.

For more information about the open houses or the Sport Shooting Partnership in general, contact Garry Sanfacon at 720-564-2642 or
