These will be the first in a three-part series of public meetings to be held in advance of a broad-scale Forest Service planning project. Meeting number one will seek to gain a better understanding of preferred public destinations and usage on and through Pole Mountain. Future meetings will establish priorities for the project, such as access locations.
“What does the public want Pole Mountain non-motorized recreation to look like 10, 20, 30 years from now?” asked Laramie District Ranger Frank Romero. “We’re looking well into the future with the Gateways project and we want the community to help us with that planning, just like they did with the motorized equivalent a few years back.
