Ritter: Develop The Roan, Protect The Environment

By  | 

On the steps of the state capitol Thursday afternoon, Governor Ritter announced that development atop the Roan Plateau should continue,
but only as long as critical areas are left unharmed.

The Governor outlined several objectives for the Roan, including expanding wildlife protection zones, exploring the possibility of incremental leasing, and incorporating state–of–the–art technology to minimize negative environmental impacts.

The Roan Plateau sits north of I–70 between Parachute and Rifle.
