Flats refuge proposal jells 16 miles of trails included in the final conservation concept
By Kim McGuire Denver Post Staff Writer December 3, 2004
The public will be able to hike, cycle and ride horses on about 16 miles of existing trails through the former Rocky Flats nuclear weapons complex after it becomes a wildlife refuge in 2007, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials said Thursday.
Addressing the Rocky Flats Citizens Advisory Board, refuge managers gave a sneak peek inside the final conservation plan being proposed for the 6,240-acre site.
The plan is awaiting final approval from the Interior Department, which could issue a decision within two weeks.
"At this point, we don't expect any changes to the document, but just realize there is a slight chance that an 11th-hour decision could change this," said Laurie Shannon, planner for the refuge.
The plan was developed after an extensive public comment period, which culminated with a series of meetings in the spring in Westminster, Boulder, Arvada and Broomfield.
