COPMOBA to Host Open House APRIL 6th for Development of the Uncompahgre Singletrack Plan 



COPMOBA will host an open house from 5:30 p.m. to 7:00 p.m., Thursday, April 6, 2017, in the Centennial Meeting Room adjacent to City Hall, 433 South 1st Street (accessed via Centennial Plaza), in Montrose, to discuss and take comments on a proposed multi-use, non-motorized trail system to be located west of Montrose in the BLM Dry Creek Travel Management Planning area.

The Uncompahgre Singletrack Plan is a conceptual trail plan for approximately 27 miles of new non-motorized singletrack trail located west of Montrose on BLM land. The area of development will expand on trails in the Buzzard Gulch, Spring Creek, and Linscott Canyon areas. The proposed trails would enhance access to public lands by constructing new multi-use trails, open to hiking, mountain biking, and equestrian uses. The trails would improve non-motorized recreational opportunities in Montrose County.

COPMOBA received a Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) Non-Motorized Trail Planning Grant for development of the Uncompahgre Singletrack Plan. The CPW grant is funding an open house/public meeting, professional trail layout - completed by Sweet and Sustainable Singletrack, and the final Uncompahgre Singletrack Plan - completed by Sparrow Trails. When completed, COPMOBA will present the Uncompahgre Singletrack Plan to the BLM for consideration. BLM will complete the necessary environmental assessment, including all necessary public scoping, and biological and cultural surveys. This open house, hosted by COPMOBA, is intended to solicit feedback from the public and identify issues, concerns, or alternatives that should be addressed in our proposal. This is not the official public scoping process, which will be held by BLM.
