Meeting This Evening Focuses on Wilderness

Written by on April 26, 2018

Two meetings this week will help the Park County Commissioners determine the fate of two Wilderness Study Areas in the mountains surrounding Cody.
At a meeting last night in Powell, the Commissioners heard comments from Park County residents on how they should designate a portion of land in the McCullough Peaks, as well as a segment called the High Lakes south of the Montana border, as wilderness areas. A meeting this evening in Cody will allow for residents from the southern part of the County to chime in as well.
A task force had been commissioned to gather information and advise the Commission on this decision, but after 22 months of work, the committee devoted to the Wyoming Public Lands Initiative could not come to a consensus.
At the Commission’s regular meeting on April 3rd, the members decided to open the topic once more to the general public. Last night’s meeting at Heart Mountain Hall in Powell, and the one this evening at 7 p.m. at the Cody Club Room, are for that purpose.
Once the Commissioners have come to an agreement, they will then make recommendations to the Wyoming County Commissioners Association, which will take the matter to the next step.
