Clear Creek, Mark Udall, and the Jeffco 5

The Golden Games start today down on Clear Creek.  Go watch for a while, then take a stroll along the newly-widened trail between the Billy Drew bridge and the RV park.

Senator Mark Udall will be in Golden tomorrow morning, hosting a “listening session” about his Browns Canyon National Monument and Wilderness Area proposal. The draft bill, based on more than a year’s worth of community input, would cover 22,000 acres between Salida and Buena Vista on the Arkansas River, including 10,500 acres of new wilderness. The event will be held at the Mountaineering Center, beginning at 9:30AM. More details are available in the calendar.

The Jeffco 5 Grassroots organization will meet tomorrow morning at 10, at 640 11th St. This group is studying the issue of whether the county board of commissioners should be increased from 3 members to 5. Questions? E-mail for more information.
